A super-moist delicious chocolate cake that will make you want to keep one on the cake plate all the time. Note the use of Self-Rising Flour in this recipe
*Note: I have often substituted Bailey's Irish Creme for the milk with delightful results.
Cream the butter and sugar with the mashed potato, then add the cocoa. Add the beaten eggs, alternately with the flour and the salt.
Finally pour in the milk, mixing well, to make a soft dough. Well grease two 8 inch cake pans and divide batter equally between them. Bake at 350 degrees F oven for 25-30 minutes.
The top will be springy to the touch when done. Cool for a few minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Frost with whipped cream or desired frosting.
To make this cake a truly decadent chocolate dessert, frost with fudge frosting using Bailey's Irish Creme, cocoa and 10X confectioner's sugar.
If you choose to use whipped cream, you can add the Bailey's Irish Cream to the heavy cream when you're beating it. Reduce any sugar and add no extra flavoring to the whipped cream.

I forgot to mention this small tip regarding caster
or superfine sugar ....for anyone unable to find it
in your local grocery. Just measure granulated
sugar, and pop it in your blender for a few minutes.
Stop the blender and check the sugar. You will see
that it is considerably finer. If it isn't fine enough to
suit you, just give it a few more whirls.
Hope this helps someone.

Here's a cute little idea for St. Patty's Day breakfast or any time that day, a clover shaped egg dish!
Yield: two clovers
Use your favorite green veggies. I used broccoli, green pepper and spinach.
Top o' the morning to you!
These two great recipes can replace a costly corned beef and cabbage supper for your St. Patrick's Day Dinner, or maybe you are just tired of corned beef and cabbage. This is a hearty soup with sandwich idea that may become a hit with your family. Home made soup always tastes better and is less costly than canned but you could really make this fast by using a good canned soup and just heating it up. Also the soup can be made in a crock pot. Just remember to add the milk and butter last and to let the soup cool a little so you don't curdle the milk.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to You and Yours from Me and Mine!
Yum! Both recipes sound great. I have bought the corned beef at the deli before but instead I have used sour dough bread and grilled the sandwich using swiss cheese. Sometimes adding brown mustard too. Really good. Thanks for the idea, because my husband does not like cabbage and I wanted to find something else for my St Patricks Day dinner.
I found this healthier version of Dublin coddle in my local newspaper a few years ago and have made it every St. Patrick's Day since.
