"This cake is great for Passover because it uses matzah meal flour instead of regular white flour. It also includes neither butter nor leavening agents. If you cannot find potato flour or matzah meal flour, all-purpose flour will work just fine. However, it wouldn't be kosher. A good sponge cake needs a great deal of air beaten into the eggs.

matzo cake meal
this cake was very good I used all purpus flour inplace of the matzo cake meal and it came out fine. I also made a glaze by mixing 3 cups powdered sugar, 1/3 cup pink lemon-ade, and 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract. everyone at our passover dinner loved it!
I tried to make this cake for a presentation on Passover and i gotta admit, I did not love it. I tried to add the pink lemonade glaze and it made the cake too moist and the flavor just seemed to clash. I think I would have liked it more with just whipped cream and some sort of fruit topping.
