    I have a recipe for yeast dinner rolls that includes leftover mashed potatoes. Trouble was we hardly ever had mashed potatoes left over.

    Oddly enough I had saved a bunch of mashed potatoes on Sunday and when I got up Monday morning my husband had thrown them out while cleaning up the kitchen!!! I was saving them to make potatoe patties….I so would have made this cake! My mom and aunt make a donut that contains mashed potatoes.
    Next time I make mashed potatoes I will definitely be making enought to try this cake!!!
