    Just had this cake for Passover last night. Oh my gosh! So very good! I couldn't find hazelnuts so I just used candied walnuts. That may make it a little too sweet for some, but my guest just raved over this cake. I can see myself using the syrup recipe for this cake for other desserts as well. This is a keeper!

    Excellent! This was my second time putting together an orthodox seder, and this was so successfull that my mother asked that I bring another one to her birthday! Thanks, chia!

    This recipe was a HUGE hit at our Passover seder. Finding truly delicious Passover desserts is challenging to say the least. Everyone ooooooh'd and ahhhhh'd over this one, though. It was very easy to make, too. Definitely a keeper!!

    I keep thinking about how amazing this cake tasted! A Passover cake tasting great is almost unheard of, but you succeeded with this cake. Very easy to make! The syrup makes the cake extremely moist and delicious.
