This "cake" pie is Parve & Kosher for Passover. I had it the first time in Israel when we were invited to friends of my Parents for lunch during Passover. Back in Vienna where we live my kids ask me to make it every week!! I end up making it at least once a month just to have peace but it is truely delecious & everyone loves it. The name of the lady who made the cake where we were invited was Phyllis & this is her recipe.

My wife and I are Catholic and our very close friends are conservative Jews. Now, we do not have a Kosher kitchen, but we do our best to accomodate their needs. I found all of the necessary ingredients to make this Parve for Passover and this dessert was incredible. They each had seconds and asked for the recipe.
