Chocolate Potato Cake

This cake reminds me of one I had in Nashville, at Rotiers.


1 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup hot water

Allow to cool.  Set aside. Cream:

⅔ cup butter
2 cups granulated sugar


1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs, one at a time


2 cups flour
¾ cup cocoa powder
2¼ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons mocha powder

Slowly add the cooled mashed potato mixture. When batter is smooth add:

1 cup chocolate morsels

Bake in a greased 9x13 inch pan at 350˚ for 38 minutes.  Serve warm or briefly warm individual servings in microwave.  Top with ice cream.

Maryann is looking like a chocolate dream!
 Of course, Maryann had the food made for her New Year's Day brunch in the freezer for weeks.  She and her party will be a smashing success.  There will be rack of lamb, tiny fingerling potatoes and baby peas and the decadent chocolate cake for dessert...don't forget the black-eyed peas for luck.
