If you love Tortes, but have been looking for a lighter filling, rather than the traditional butter cream one, this is a great recipe for you. The cake layers are very thin, and the filling is mostly apples, with a nice caramel glaze.
If you have been checking out my previous posts, and printed out some great recipes to try out for Passover, you will be happy to know that I saved a fabulous one for this post.
I am told that this recipe for Chocolate Toffee Matzos has been mentioned, several years back, on the Dallas Morning News, and my friend was so kind to share it with me.
I came across this recipe, and the mere fact which caught my eye, was that even though the cake is baked, it does not require any batter mixing.
This recipe is so simple, thus perfect for even the beginner baker. The finished product is not heavy, not too sweet, and , may be served warm or cold, plain or with choice of topping.
I love baking, but since so many of my “consumers” are trying to eat healthfully, or experiment with different diets now and then, I try to support them, and do not bake as much. I also need to learn from their good judgment and cut down on these indulgences.
However, when Holidays come around, and parties are to be attended to, and family and friends to join for some merry making, I get back to my baking.
Dieting is not an easy task to keep up with, but worse yet, what do you do about celebrating a Birthday, and you need a special cake for the occasion. How about a cake for someone on Atkins Diet (high fat and extremely low carbs), which means no sugar and no flour……a couple of main ingredients you always use in making cakes!
Google.com to the rescue!! I found a real nice recipe for a Sugar Free Pecan Chocolate Cake, but I was quite skeptical about the outcome of this project….cake without flour or real sugar…only sugar substitutes….??? Would it taste like chocolate flavored cardboard??? Would it be very dense? Would it be very flat???
