  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Melt chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave by heating at 30 second intervals, and stirring between each one. When chocolate is almost melted, just remove from the microwave and stir until smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks one at a time until well blended. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites with a pinch of superfine sugar until stiff. Fold the melted chocolate into the sugar mixture, then fold in the egg whites.
  3. Pour 1/4 of the bottle of wine into an 8x8 inch baking dish. Soak one of the matzo sheets briefly on both sides, then remove to a serving platter. If you soak too long, it will break apart and become hard to work with. Spread a thin layer of the chocolate cream over the soaked matzo. Continue soaking and layering the matzos and chocolate cream, leaving enough of the chocolate mixture to frost the sides when finished. Add more wine to the dish as necessary for soaking.
  4. Press chopped nuts onto the sides, or sprinkle them on top for garnish. Refrigerate overnight to allow the chocolate and wine to blend flavors.

Very interesting idea. I didn't think this was good, but the kids at the seder liked it a lot. Afterwards, I realized that raw eggs probably were not good to serve to them, but they seem okay ...

The best Passover cake I have ever had!! I would even make it during the rest of the year. Also it tastes AMAZING if you add you use a little bit of a chopped chocolate bar like chocolate chips.

I plan to make this with the "upscale" suggestions but I will alter this to substitute pasturized egg yolks and egg whites for the raw ingrediants. Decorating the top with chocolate curls and/o...

I made two, figuring that something that small wouldn't feed the entire seder crowd. I was WRONG. This "cake" is so rich and so good that all 16 ate the one cake, and I sent the other home with ...

I use to make this and my family adored it. I stopped because of the concern over raw eggs. It is an absolutely fantastic recipe. You can make it a couple of days ahead.

Great recipe! I make it every passover, it tastes even better if you add a hazelnut flavored chocolate to the melted chocolate! enjoy!

Relatives in Israel gave me the recipe so I was astonished to see it here! Egg concerns? Don't use them. It will turn out just fine. Wine concerns? Use grape juice, pomegranate or cherry juice a...

Was VERY good. But how come it says ready in 30 minutes if you have to put it in the frig overnight?
