Spicy Chocolate Potato Cake

I love to use produce that's in season... and at this time of year about the only thing left from the veg plot (apart from sprouts!) is plenty of yummy homegrown potatoes! This year I grew about 6 varieties of spuds from delicious salad varieties like Charlotte to main crop varieties like Kind Edward. It's always a treat to have homegrown spuds for Christmas dinner so I planted plenty to make sure there would be some left. Of course plenty means too many so here's a way of using the odd one up!

You will need - 185g of butter
1/3 cup soft brown sugar
2 free range eggs
1/3 cup golden syrup
3/4 cup self raising flour
1/3 cup plain flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup raw grated potato (I used a King Edward)

Cream the butter and sugar with an electric mix until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs and the syrup.

Stir in all the dried ingredients and the grated potato.

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for 55mins.

Allow to cool before making up some Ganache Topping and pouring over, topping off with a sprinkling of crumbled flake.
