My friend Andi, shared her recipe for a One Step Sponge Cake, she bakes for their Passover dessert, served after Seder.
This is my first cake baking experience with using Matzoh Meal, instead of regular flour, even though I did bake a flourless chocolate cake before.
Needless to say, the cake came out delicious, and its flavor reminds me of Lady Fingers cookies.
This cake may be served plain, or with your favorite accompaniments.
I enjoyed my piece with Blueberry Syrup under it (the bottom of the cake was deliciously saturated), plus a little drizzle over the top, and a bit of whipped cream. For those of you who “worship” chocolate, I bet some chocolate syrup, or hot fudge, would be even better than blueberry.
TIP: I was not able to find Cake Meal, and according to Google search, it consists of finely ground up Matzoh, so I placed several broken up Matzoh sheets in a food processor, and made my own Matzoh Meal. I used about 8 oz of Matzoh sheets, for 1 cup of Matzoh Meal. Much cheaper as well, since ready made Matzoh Meal costs $3.95 a box (probably 12 oz). I paid that much for 6 – 16 oz. boxes of Matzoh.
Also, this recipe specifies NOT to grease the pan for the cake. I was kind of skeptical about it, since the cake pan I have always gives me problems with removing cakes from it, so I did grease it with vegetable shortening, and dusted it with some Matzoh Meal. The cake still had to be loosened up around the edges for easier handling. It did not slide right out, as I expected.
