Moravian Sugar Cake

Moravian Sugar Cake is a traditional Easter breakfast, though fluffy and sweet coffee cake is always in season. The secret to this warm, yeasty bread's lightness is the addition of mashed potatoes. This recipe is adapted from the traditional recipe shared on the Waconia Moravian Church's website.
