Birthday by proxy: Dutch Potato Cake for My Brother Brian

Happy Birthday, Brian! Continuing my tradition of birthday cakes by proxy, the 23rd of March is his birthday and I baked a cake in his honor. I’m pretty sure that his fiancee will be providing one closer to home, but we won’t be sharing it, so I decided to make my great great grandmother’s recipe for Dutch Potato Cake. It’s got good Dutch chocolate in it plus mashed potatoes and some spices.

I knew you wouldn’t be coming over, but I baked a cake anyway.

Last thing: some Belgium chocolate non-pareils. Oh, this is gonna be yummy in an hour after the frosting sets a bit, even without the party. I will have a slice with some Formula 1 Melbourne qualifying, first race of 2018. Birthday cake and Formula 1.
