Subtle flavour but very nice and moist. Made my wedding cake from this recipe. Freezes well with or without icing. Muffins can also be made from this mixture. It will make 24 regular muffins and 48 mini muffins. I bake the regular muffins for 30=35 minutes, and the mini muffins for 10-15 minutes.
Was in a paper cutting my aunt gave me from an USA newspaper back in the 80's.. I have adapted it over the years to be yummier :) It is a very large cake that needs to be cooked in a roasting dish.. very moist and best iced with cream cheese frosting.
I made this recipe up after spending ages looking for a less fattening version of Pommes Anna. I used everyday Desiree potatoes - I think any type of potato would work. You can also omit the cheese or change to a hard cheese like Parmesan. I also have added garlic salt instead of regular on some occasions. The potatoes need slicing down to about 1-2mm thick to make this the best.
