Mmmm. This cake was wonderful. especially when eaten still warm! Toasted Pecans are just so luscious.
Made some super-fine sugar.
All ready to go!
The "Ez Man" was with me for moral support.
Whip the yolks. I must have under whipped them as I ended up without the full volume.
Fold in the pecans.
I added some espresso made in the percolator.
Whip and add the egg whites.
All ready. It fill up 1/4 of the pan and not 1/2. It rose to about 1/2 the pan after baking. Still looks pretty close to the picture in the book though, I think.
Oh no! It split. Mimi says its in honor of the Splitting of the Sea which happens on the 7th day of Passover.
Perhaps it was because the only cake rack I could find was the (clean) chicken rack. As you can see, some of the cake tried to go through the holes and left its desiccated cake innards on the rack, as described by Rose in her latest video.
Kosher for Passover, fish gelatin.
Whipped the parve cream with the coffee. One of the nice things about using frozen parve cream is that its already nice and cold when you whip it.
Yum! Again, another non-Passover-tasting Passover cake.
