I was looking for something a bit different to make
with cabbage for our family reunion this year, which
was yesterday, 9/21/08. I came across a few different
recipes and none of them seemed to be "just right."
So I tried some ideas from a few of them and came up
with this one. I doubled the recipe and there were only
side scrapings left on the pan at the reunion. I thought
it tasted really, really good. Try it for yourself.
If you precook the potatoes and cabbage the day
before it doesn't take long at all to put it all together.
An excellent white cake. Great for a one pan type or cupcakes too. This is a recipe I have had for almost 30 years and until I saw that someone was looking for a whitish cake, had forgotten it. Time to make it again. I have no idea where it came from, I think it is a variation of a recipe my girlfriend gave me back then. Also, if you substitute oil, the cooking time would be longe
I have been making this recipe for years. I don't know if someone else has the same one, but it is one I came up with when I was first married and I did not care for the store ready-to-spread ones. You can also add food coloring too--I have had some pretty colors with this frosting.
