This cake was pretty good! I couldn't find potato flour at my grocery store and I wasn't making it for Passover so I used white flour. The recipe says to bake for an hour but I think that is too long (at least it is too long if using white flour). The cake was a bit overdone at 50 minutes when I took it out. Read More

Use granulated sugar. I believe confectioners sugar has cornstarch in it which is not suitable for Passover. Karen from LI Read More
