    coconutty's Note:

    In the early 1990’s Gourmet Magazine did a series of Passover cakes which I now cannot find on I had copied some of them and am posting them here. Note re powdered sugar: If kosher-for-Passover powdered sugar is unavailable, you can pulverize granulated sugar in a blender.

      I made this last night for Passover seder tonight. It was pretty easy to make, though a bit dry, as Passover cakes typically are. Because I am not concerned with kashruth, I will add some melted butter (maybe 1/4 stick?) at the very end.
