Another family recipe I grew up on. The potato keeps it moist. Freezes well. (Australian measurements)

This recipe has a wonderful old-time taste to it. One thing that I would caution against, however: make sure that your ingredients are all at room temperature before you begin. This recipe did not state ingredient temperature, and I ended up having to blend the first six ingredients in the food processor just to get a nice, smooth texture. I also forgot to fold in the raisins, so instead I sprinkled currants over the dough in the pan and then sprinkled over the streusel. Thank you for sharing such a pleasant recipe.
