Fr. Paul’s Potato Cake
1 cooked potato, riced or mashed
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar, packed
4 eggs
2 ½ cups of flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
½ tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. ground ginger
1 cup milk
1 cup pecans, chopped
½ cup Thompsons Seedless raisins
Candied Lemon Rind
      1 lemon
      1 cup cold water
      1/4 cup white sugar
Peel the rind off the lemons being careful not to include the white pith.
Place the lemon peels in a small saucepan with 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Let lemon peels cool in the simple syrup, then remove and slice into thin strips.

Directions for cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To a mixing bowl cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffly. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after adding each one. Add the riced or mashed potato and mix well.

To a large bowl add flour, baking powder, spices and whisk gently just to combine. Then add to thr creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with the flour. Stir in pecans and raisins and candied lemon rind. Divide batter into two 9inch cake pans, that have been buttered and floured, so the cake will not sick and come out of the pan cleanly.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 – 60 minutes. Cool in pans 20 minutes, remove cakes and cool completely before service.

This cake can be dusted with powdered sugar or it can be filled with jelly or jam and frosted.
