Fluffy White Frosting:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and 1 cup sugar. Add egg yolks; beat well. Add potatoes and mix thoroughly. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and milk, beating until smooth. Stir in vanilla and nuts. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add remaining sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter.

Beat with electric mixer for 1 minute. Place over boiling water; beat constantly for 7 minutes, scraping sides of pan occasionally. Remove from heat. Add vanilla; beat 1 minute. Frost cake. 16-20 servings.

DO YOU TASTE THE POTATOES IN IT? WHY ARE POTATOES ADDED? TO MAKE IT MOIST??
Thanks so much for this recipe! In my girlhood my dad used to buy spudnuts which are donuts made with potatoes. One of my mom's friends made this and we just loved it! I have wanted to find it and now you have provided it.
Just like with potato bread, this will taste so good!
