Potatoes go in this cake ity ctmv Assw-iated Wtess fowl tffltor Aft old-fashioned dessert that deserves a come back Is called Mexican Potato Cake. tton't ask as why It's labeled Mexican because we aren't sure. It's not to be found in any of our dozen of so Mexican cookbooks. Out guess is that it was given this nomenclature 'because the recipe calls for both chocolate and cinnamon— two flavors Mexican cooks like to team. Well, here it is-with the same delicious flavor and moist texture It's always had, but made the modern way. The original recipe called for regular mashed potatoes; our updated recipe uses the excellent instant country-style mashed potato flakes— a great convenience. ' We like the cake best served warm with a topping of whipped cream. But other tasters like it as well eaten cold and out of hand. We suggest you try it both ways. MEXICAN POTATO CAKE 1% squares (1% oz) unsweetened chbcolate 1 cup flour, fork-stirred to aerate before measuring 2 teaspoons baking powder 14 teaspoon salt % teaspoon cinnamon % teaspobn nutmeg ] 4 teaspoon cloves % cup water % cup milk 2-3rd cup instant country-style mashed potato flakes % cup (1,4-lb stick) butter 1 cup sugar 2 large eggs % cup chopped (medium-fine) pecans or walnuts Vanilla or chocolate-flavor whipped cream, if desired • Line a square cake pan (8 by 8 by 2 inches) with wax- paper; grease paper. On another sheet of wax paper coarsely grate chocolate; chill until needed. On another sheet -of wax paper, with % fork, thoroughly stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil; remove from heat; add % cup of the milk and the instant potato. When liquid is absorbed, stir lightly with a fork; do not wbip.jEi a medium mixing bowl cream butter and sugar; add eggs; beat until thoroughly blended, Beat in warm mashed potato; (Mixture will look curdled, but this doesn't affect finished cake.) Stir in remaining % cup milk. Add flour mixture and stir until well blended. Stir in 14 cup of the nuts, then grated chocolate. Turn into prepared pan; sprinkle with remaining 14 cup nuts. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven 35 to 40 mimites or until top is browned and cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Place cake in pan on wire rack and let stand 5 minutes. With a small metal spatula loosen edges; turn out on rack; remove paper. With another rack turn right side up. /Serve warm or cold. If 'used, top individual portions with whipped cream. Makes 9 servings. NOTE: Be sure to grate the chocolate coarsely so the cake will be chocolate-flecked. Cooking is fun By CECILY BROWNSTONE AF Food Editor FAMILY SUPPER ( > - .' ' V-' .
