Holidays: Passover Courses: Desserts & Baked Goods Cuisines: Baked Goods / Holiday Cooking When I lived in Toronto, Sue Devor, the owner of "Sweet Sue's" pastry shop was my congregant. She often led a "baking for Passover" cooking demo at my congregation. Passover baked goods shouldn't taste like "Passover". She introduced me to this rich and gooey chocolate torte. This recipe has become one of my most requested YEAR-ROUND favourites. My brother (the Culinary Institute of America trained chef) declared: "Wow! This cake is better than one of mine!" I've modified Sue's original recipe to make it serve a larger group and added a chocolate glaze. You can flavour it with mint extract (if you like mint), or use a strong espresso (in place of water) if you like a mocha flavour. This is sure to be a show-stopper and a big hit! Here is my version of Sue's fabulous recipe. Thank you, Sue!
Holidays: Passover Courses: Side Dishes Cuisines: Vegetables / Vegetarian These taste like the most delicious carrot muffins, but not too sweet. They are a fabulous side dish with a roast beef, or chicken or fish. Kids gobble them up. It can be made in a 9" X 13" pan and cut in squares, or in muffin tins. I love making them in my Nordicware Rose muffin tin, because they just look so beautiful! They also freeze very well.
