PESACH is almost here!!! I do not know how everyone's cleaning is going, and I'm not here to share cleaning tips (maybe I should ask to do a post on that.) But I do know many of you have started planning your menus and thought I would cover dessert for you today.
Now that we are getting closer to Pesach I will post different Pesach-friendly recipes weekly. The first one is this cake. This cake is perfect for the holiday because it does not use any flour and the ingredients are Kosher for Pesach. This recipe can be made/eaten all year round if you want a flourless cake.
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup sugar
6 large eggs, slightly beaten
10 oz semisweet or bittersweet chocolate - I like semisweet
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 cup margarine or butter
Start by preheating your oven to 350F. Grease a 10-inch springform pan, then line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
In a small saucepan, combine chocolate and margarine and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until completely melted. Remove from heat and let it cool.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt and whisk until incorporated. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
Add 1/3 of the chocolate mixture and stir until incorporated; repeat with the remaining 2/3 of chocolate.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 40 minutes, until just set but still soft in the center. Let cool completely.
Sift confectioner’s sugar over the top of the cake, and garnish with anything you like.
I prefer it with just the sugar on top.
I sadly do not have a picture this time because I only make it on Pesach and do not have pictures from previous years.
