Flourless Nutcake
This recipe comes to us from the kitchen of Yvonne Engelman. "I learned this recipe from Aunty Helen, who was like a mother to me. I watched her cook and she simply told me what to do. This cake is always a success, and still, to this day, reminds me of her. I bake many of these cakes to give to my children and grandchildren each year for Pesach"

    Being in Australia, Passover usually falls in or around the Easter school holidays, which means camping for many Aussies. So I’m looking for ideas to use during passover while camping.There must be some one-pot, one-pan or wrapped-in-foil-and-put-on-the-fire recipe wonders kicking around? We are especially after brekkie ideas instead of pancakes, breads etc

    Jen Mc-F – First time i saw this website – but thought I’d reply: beware mostly of WHAT type of “flour” you use: it needs to be flour MADE FROM MATZO. Then use it in the recipes. Probably good not to make an “oven” (a vessel in which your “matzo-flour” is totally enclosed) so as not to raise the dough, but some are not so wary of this and do this. Many people don’t use their ovens at all on Pesach. I myself try not to eat anything “leavened (raised)”. My Father z”l made the world’s beset Matzo-brye! That was our breakfast! Pour boiling water over 2 matzos/person in a bowl, mix till all the matzos have absorbed water. Add 1 egg/person, 1tsp oil/person to the mix, maybe salt. Heat up the frying pan (I prefer butter). Turn over when brown. YUM. Pesach sameach from Chaya in Tel-Aviv
