Passover is around the corner and while I usually resort to custards, sorbets and ice creams, this past week I baked a Peanut Apple Cake to rave reviews. Originally a cardamon Apple Almond Cake recipe from Gourmet. I subbed peanuts for the almonds as we are allergic to tree nuts. I also used 1 teaspoon vanilla for the cardamon though I absolutely love the spice. I also whipped the eggs yolks and egg whites as instructed in the directions, incorporated egg whites and yolks, and only then added the matzo meal dry mix into wet mix folding it gently in a few batches to make the cake batter.
On a personal note. I have been MIA recently. I am torn and miss you and posting here. Life has been super hectic with Spring here, personal and professional projects and S is back on Spring break with his British roommate. I do pause and make them pancakes the mornings when they are here and not visiting friends overnight.
