One of the best Pesach cakes we’ve tasted. Ever. One of those ‘I can’t believe it’s a Pesach cake’ cakes. We’ve tried it with plums and almonds, and figs and hazelnuts and it is just so great! You can replace the matzo flour with plain (all purpose) flour for a cake any time of the year.
In Leah Koenig‘s wonderful book, ‘Modern Jewish Cooking’, Leah explains that she isn’t a fan of baking with matzo meal but in this cake, it’s very well hidden.
This recipe can also be found in our latest book, Now for Something Sweet.
