Saxon potato cake: the recipe
Here’s how it works: It is best to cook the potatoes the day before. If this is not possible, give the potatoes enough time to cool down. If they are still hot, they will not adhere properly. And: Boil the potatoes with less salt than usual.
Also to prepare: Soak the raisins in a little water so that they swell a little.

When everything is ready, press the cooled potatoes in a mixing bowl, add the flour, 200 grams of butter, the soaked raisins, the eggs, the baking powder and two tablespoons of sugar and knead everything well until you have a smooth dough. Now let it rest for 30 minutes at room temperature and preheat the oven to 200 degrees circulating air (220 degrees top / bottom heat).
Now grease a baking tray with a small piece of the remaining butter and roll out the dough on it. Now put it in the oven for 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter in a saucepan and mix the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar with the teaspoons of cinnamon in a bowl.
