This delicious, sinfully moist and rich cake will be a sure favorite!

There is also the option of using sticks of dairy-free margarine…

Potato Souffle

Yes, I know it is an awfully flat souffle. I freely admit that this is my first try at a souffle and I over-folded the egg whites, hence no-pouffy 🙁 Hindsight is 20/20 and now I know better… I also think I baked it at temp too low and for too long, I am open…
