    grandma2969's Note:

    This is an old recipe. It is extremely moist because of the mashed potatoes and raisins, and the texture is velvety smooth. The frosting with its touch of citrus is quite perfect with this cake.

      This is a great little cake ! I did a couple of changes just to make it fun for a friend, i substituted 2 oz. Jamiesons for the Buttermilk and used Baileys in the frosting instead of milk. It was a hit at my office party and will be making over and over. Thank you for the recipe.
