This is a great Passover dessert or for all year round. I got this out of the Spice and Spirit cookbook. It is a family favorite.

This is really good. I have eaten it lots of time at Chava's house when she made it for Passover and all year round and now I made it for dessert for friends at the Passover seder. We all loved it. It was the perfect desset since we were already stuffed and just wanted something sweet to end the meal. One small slice of this is so rich and satisfying. Really worth the effort.

Excellent recipe - very chocolately! Curious if other's served it straight from freezer or fridge? Mine was from fridge and very messy.

This is my classic fallback Pesach recipe and it always gets RAVE reviews. Thinking about all that margarine kind of makes me shudder, but this is utterly delicious. You won't believe there's no flour in the bottom layer... and no dairy in the top! p.s. I sometimes spread a thin layer of raspberry jam - seedless - between the "baked" and "frozen" layers for a nice finishing touch.
