You may recall as part of my Passover Cooking Frenzy, I made a Crumb Cake from the Passover by Design cookbook. I didn’t have high hopes for the cake because it looked like, well … sand. It appeared to be so dry that I called my MIL and asked if she could bring another dessert because I was afraid mine would end up in the trash.
Let me tell you that we were all so pleasantly surprised by this cake. I think it’s the Passover diamond cake in the rough because the taste is completely amazing. It looks like sand but has a moist, fluffy, almost angel food cake like taste. And what’s even more odd is that there is a hint of apple flavor in the cake, even though there’s not an apple anywhere to be found. Even my hubbie, who is not a dessert person, loves this cake.
I tried to find an online version of this “beauty” but had no luck. So if you have the Passover by Design cookbook, it’s on page 248. If not, drop me a comment and I’ll hook you up.
If you have some free time tomorrow, whip this cake up for Shabbos. The recipe calls for ingredients you probably already have in your pantry (yes, even during passover) and it’s super easy to make:
- Brown Sugar
- Baking Powder
- Vanilla sugar
- Vegetable Oil
- Potato Starch
- Butter or Margarine
- Ladyfinger cookies (or any kind of Passover boxed cookies that crumble well)
Enjoy the rest of your Passover and Happy Kosher
