This is a Faye Levy recipe from her weekly column in the Friday Jerusalem Post. This is a great breakfast meal for anyone, but especially for those who are Somersizing or on the Atkins (or any low carb) diet.
Most people like to serve compote for dessert on Passover to help alleviate the effects of the matza and because there aren't too many easy or good Passover desserts. I got this recipe from a Passover cookbook called "Let My People Eat"
There they are, every single Passover, those Macaroons. You can't escape them! I, personally, am not a fan of the coconut macaroon, which is the more popular kind of Passover cookie you find in the supermarket. But an almond macaroon? That's almost worth the whole holiday!
This was adapted, doubled and adjusted from the Breuer's Teacher's Seminary cookbook. It won't win secular or year-round gourmet awards, but it makes yummy, simple and light Passover brownies that don't have an overly potato-starchy aftertaste. Our Passover utensils are limited: this uses only the mixer, a liquid measuring cup (also used to check the eggs) and a half-cup-sized dry measuring cup. The brownies come out about 1.25 inches high. All the best, CLKL
This mousse is so incredibly rich that you can stand a spoon in it and it will not fall. I have been making this recipe for the last 18 years, it's based on a recipe I found in a Marks & Spencer's cookbook I got as a wedding present. [Edited to say that this was posted in 2001, now it's 2006 and it's been 23 years since I've been making this recipe, and it's still going strong!]
This is being posted in response to a request for a Passover cake. The recipe is originally found in the Let My People Eat cookbook. The description indicates it has a lot of flavor and little cholesterol. Cake may fall a little as it cools. The cake may also be prepared 2-3 days in advance and glazing should be done on the day the cake is being served. Cook time includes refrigerator time. Actual prep and cooling time are unknown.
A great Passover brownie that is easy to make. I've made them with and without the nuts and there are never any left from either. I already have requests for this for next Passover. The brownies are fairly flat and thin in a 9x13-inch pan. They can be made in a smaller pan but the cooking time will need to be adjusted.
