mashed cooked potatoes
What an interesting recipe, I had to try it! Very good and very easy. The family loved it!
This one didn't work very well. The cake came out very dense and the center pulled away from the edge of the cake leaving a thick pudding like lump and then a crust. Also, I think it's too much cloves - overwhelming flavor.
Next time I will cut the cin, cloves, nutmeg by half. Strong flavor. I'm also going to try it with apples instead of raisens.
I made this for a St. Patricks day family party. Everyone loved it. They all want the recipe (which i may keep to myself) and they said this I will have to bring each time we get together. Did I mention my grandmother-inlaw from Ireland loved it too....
Made this for St Patricks Day and everyone who came to supper liked it. The recipe was so easy my 4 year old helped make it. The only change I made was to cut the cloves down to 1 teaspoon per other reviewers suggestions. This recipe will definitely become a St Patricks Day tradition in our house.
I added 1 tsp vanilla and cut cloves & nutmeg to 1 tsp each. I baked as 6 mini cakes. I also made a glaze with confectioner's sugar, milk & vanilla to drizzle over them and topped each with a maraschino cherry. They were moist, pretty, spice cakes -- and no one knew they were made with leftover mashed potatoes.
I have never had potato bread/cake before, and was curious. This was absolutely delicious! I love it, and am eating a piece right now. This is a recipe I will keep in my cookbook.
Superb texture and flavor!! I only had 1 cup of mashed potatoes, so I cut the recipe in half and made 13 muffins. (Hint: to prevent muffins from sticking to paper liners, spray the liners with Pam.) They were perfectly done in 30 minutes. They smelled so good, I couldn't wait to try one. Tasted delicious warm. Great use for leftover mashed potatoes. I'm sure I'll be making these again. Thanks for the recipe!
