How do you make matzah cake?

  • 1

    For the chocolate ganache:

    In a medium-sized pot, cook cream and chocolate together over medium heat while stirring until the chocolate is completely melted.

    Alternatively, you can melt in the microwave in pulses and mix in between.

  • 2 Add the alcohol and mix.

    Transfer to a storage container and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or until completely cool.

  • 3 Transfer the cold chocolate batter to the mixer bowl with the whisk attachment, add the instant pudding powder and the milk and whip to a firm whipped cream at high speed for about 2-3 minutes (be careful not to over-whisk).

    Assembling the cake:

    pour the milk with half a cup of water into a large flat bowl and lightly dip the first matzah in the liquid.

    Place the matzah on a square plate, spread 3 spoonfuls of the whipped ganache on it, so that it covers the matzah.

    Dip another matzah in milk and repeat the process until there is only filling left to cover the top.

  • 5 If you want, sprinkle candies on top.

    Cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

  • Storage:

    3-4 days in the refrigerator, fully covered is recommended.
