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”
