This recipe was submitted by Gerd Doroshuk of Dauphin Manitoba and was included in the Extending the Table cookbook. In Norway, they know this as "Citron Kake". The potato flour used in this recipe is simlar to cornstarch and give the cake a nice, smooth texture. (If potato flour is not available, you can substitute cornstarch or rice flour, or increase the white flour to 3 cups.) This was posted for the ZWT 6.
