Is this the best chocolate cake ever? It's definitely one of the most unusual, but the combination of potato and sour cream works their magic with the dark chocolate to create a gorgeous texture and taste. I've added this recipe to my permanent chocolate cake collection, and we think you might too! 

Chocolate Potato Cake


  • 1/2 cup cold mashed potato
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 2/3 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 125g dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 and 1/4 cups self raising flour
  • cocoa powder for dusting
  • cream and berries to serve


  1. Grease a 20cm ring pan; line base and side with baking paper.
  2. Combine potato and sour cream in a small bowl; mix well.
  3. Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add cooled chocolate; beat until combined.
  4. Fold potato mixture and sifted flour into chocolate mixture. Spread into prepared pan.
  5. Cook in a moderate oven, 180 degrees celsius, for about 45 mins, or until cooked when tested. Stand cake in pan for 5 mins; turn onto wire rack and cool.
  6. Dust cake with cocoa powder; serve with cream and berries.
