Soften yeast in the warm water.
Mix the sugar, salt, eggs, and 1 cup butter in a large bowl.
Add the mashed potato gradually, beating well.
Add 1 cup of the flour; beat until smooth.
Stir in yeast, then beat in enough remaining flour to form a light, soft dough.
Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 2 hours.
Divide dough into thirds and press evenly into 3 greased 9-inch square pans.
Cover; let rise again until doubled.
Meanwhile, blend brown sugar and cinnamon.
Make indentations about 1 inch apart in dough in each pan and spoon some of sugar mixture into each depression.
Drizzle remaining 1/2 cup melted butter over sugar mixture.
Bake at 350°F about 20 minutes, or until cakes are golden brown.
