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.


Ingredients


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)



Method


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.
