I haven't looked for potato starch (went to the grocery yesterday and I live in a very small town where it isn't carried), but is there something else I could use? I can't wait to try this cake. It sounds perfect for Sunday dinner with my grandparents! Thank you for the recipe!
I have done some research since potato starch is so hard to find...everything that I have read says that you can substitute an equal amount of corn starch for the potato starch. Hope you enjoy!
Hallo, it's so interesting; We in Europe, as me in Italy, cant' find lots of products for cakes which you use in USA .So we have to order it from USA and if we have fortune we find it at UK. We dont use the same product as you do ,like ;ratio shortening and othe things. You dont use potato starch as we does! Potato starch only helps that cake become softner and "easier".Doesn't change the taste. You can ,as Cbrosado says, substitute it with normal flour. I have an recepie like this but I add a little bit of Cincamon. Bye Alma
I see that the recipe states to use "4 small green apples" but I was wondering what kind of apples might be the best? Sour like Granny Smith? Or will any regular eating apple do??
The recipe author didn't specify a type other than green. Use whatever you fave is :-)
