This is definitely the easiest cake I have ever made! It’s Gluten Free, can be made dairy or pareve, with eggs or with egg substitute, so versatile! You make it in one bowl, it’s not too sweet, and is a real crowd-pleaser. Perfect for Passover or all year round. It’s decadent, so just a small slice will suffice. It literally melts in your mouth! Serve with Cocoa Whipped Cream(recipe below), Pareve Cocoa Whipped Topping(recipe below) or vanilla ice cream.

In these uncertain times, I’ve decided to repost a recipe from several years ago Not only are these easy but they can serve as a fun project with the kids. Coconut Pyramids are delicious treats that remind us of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt. These were originally introduced to me by a beloved family member when I visited her in England. She told me that she made them every Passover. In order to recreate her recipe, I took my “Awesome Coconut Macaroons” and changed them into cute little pyramids! If you want to drizzle/dip with chocolate, or hazelnut spread, check out the tip section below.
Be well and stay safe. Have a Happy Passover!
Fried Bananas for Chanukkah
Here is a quick and easy dessert for Chanukkah and also healthy! You can make this with graham cracker crumbs and/or shredded coconut. I make this gluten-free using gluten-free graham cracker crumbs. (Coconut is naturally gluten-free). This is the perfect ending to your Chanukkah feast. Young children will enjoy getting the banana slices ready for frying. An added bonus: the coconut oil leaves a wonderful scent in the house! Happy Chanukkah, Chag Chanukkah Sameach! The Recipe

Just in time for Thanksgiving, this recipe combines a traditional Jewish favorite with Thanksgiving flavors. Think of Mandel Bread as “Jewish Biscotti”, crunchy on the outside, but in this version, softer on the inside. The original recipe is from my friend, Marty’s Aunt Hannah, who lived to be 100 years old. This is such an easy recipe to make, it is very healthy and can be made in Gluten Free & Egg Free Versions. Bring this for Thanksgiving, Chanukkah or any holiday that you celebrate and you will have everyone asking for the recipe!! May Aunt Hannah’s memory be a blessing!
