This year I finally figured out the secret to converting a regular cake recipe to a Passover cake recipe! The secret is that when you replace the flour in the recipe with matzo meal, you sub 40% of it with something else, like shredded coconut or ground nuts. This way you avoid baking a brick (like the ones our ancestors made during the slavery in Egypt!). The bananas in this recipe also help to moisten the cake.
