Passover Apple Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2014
This "cake" was inedible and awful. The "dough" is purely matzoh chunks mixed with lots of oil, plus some sugar. For me, it came out hard and chewy, with matzoh bits that jam in the teeth. Differences from other people: 1) I used strawberries rather than apples. I would think that strawberries would be at least as juicy, but perhaps not. 2) Per the comments of many other reviewers, it's difficult to figure out the "correct" ratio of batter to fruit (except that there's general agreement that the ratios in the original are not right.) And 3) I used homemade food-processor matzoh meal, rather than store-bought, since (around here at least) all of the matzoh meal sold in the stores (to take one prominent example, the Manischevitz) -- says "Not For Passover" on the box.
