Traditional Moravian Sugar Cake with Idaho® Potatoes

Even though Traditional Moravian Sugar Cake with Idaho® Potatoes may hail from Pennsylvania and North Carolina, folks from every state have made this coffee cake-like dessert a Christmastime tradition. It’s made with staple ingredients like Idaho® russet potatoes, milk, sugar, butter, eggs, flour, then topped with a mixture of melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. After the first bite you’ll know why this has been a family tradition for more than 250 years. We recommend enjoying it with a cup of hot tea for breakfast or as a late afternoon snack.

Food blogger Lisa Lin of Healthy Nibbles and Bits demonstrates, with perfection, how to make the classic French recipe Aligot Potatoes with Idaho® potatoes. This fondue-like dish blends mashed potatoes with cream cheese, mozzarella and white cheddar to create a creamy, elastic-like consistency that tastes as good as it sounds.
