Happy Healthy Holidays!

This potato cake recipe is generations old, just how many, no one knows for sure. The cake goes well served with fruit. While this is not technically considered a "diet" cake, it is higher in fiber than most cakes and contains nutrients from the potatoes not found in the average cake.

2 cups white sugar

3/4 cup milk
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
