1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, beat together butter and granulated sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 mins. Beat in melted chocolate, mashed potatoes, and coffee powder until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

2. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat into chocolate mixture alternately with Irish liqueur just until combined. Turn batter into well-greased 12-cup bundt pan.

3. Bake 45 to 50 mins, or until a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan 15 mins, then unmold onto a wire rack and let cool completely. Sift powdered sugar over top of cake before serving.

NOTES : Leftover mashed potatoes keep this cake moist. Use the real thing---not instant mashed potatoes, which will alter the taste.

The generous amount of Irish creme liqueur imparts an intriguing

flavor to this special cake.
