babka ziemniaczana // potato cake

Today, while picking up some bacon at Greenpoint’s Polski Meat Market, I saw a giant loaf of  babka ziemniaczana for only $3.99/lb.  I’d never heard of it before, so I decided to try half a pound.  It’s essentially a delicious potato casserole with ham, carrots and corn.  There isn’t much information (in English) about it on the web, but I did uncover that it’s rather uncommon, and is mainly eaten in Eastern Poland and Belarus.  Here’s a recipe.
