passover baking: chocolate and almond cake

From Stephanie Brada

This is a favourite Pesach cake in our family - it comes from Evelyn Rose whose recipes never fail! It is very chocolatey but does contain nuts.


100g ground almonds

3 level tablespoons fine matzo meal

100g grated dark chocolate

3 large eggs

125g castor sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Loaf tin (26 x 11 x 7.5cm)


Heat 325F/ 160C

Grease the tin and line the base

Mix the almonds, matzo meal and grated chocolate

Whisk the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks, then add the sugar a tablespoon at a time, whisking until stiff after every addition.

Fold in the yolks, then the dry ingredients

Mix in the lemon juice

Spoon into the tin and level off.

Bake for 45 minutes until golden brown. Cool until cold in the tin.
