Passover is coming and with it all the traditional holiday food.
Whenever I talk about this type of classic Matzah layers cake, my husband always shake his head, and say that matzah and cake just don't go together...
Don't blame him, he doesn't know any better :).
This year, I proved him wrong, he ate so much of this cake while I was decorating it, that I hardly had enough to take a photo...

Matzah is simply unleavened bread. It is said to be one of the only foods the Israelites in Egypt were able to eat and take with them while escaping hastily from Pharaoh. In commemoration of that first Seder meal, and the haste in which the Israelites left Egypt, we eat matzah at the Seder and all through the holiday
I can write so many good things about dark chocolate, my personal opinion is very clear if you already know me :) I love it.
Now, as objectively as I can, I will write a little bit of important info about this amazing material
- It is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet
- 100 grams of Dark chocolate contains 11 grams of fiber
- Dark chocolate is rich in other nutrients, for example ,iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese
It has been proven that consuming quality dark chocolate is linked to a reduction of heart disease
So, chocolate is amazing! Just make sure to choose quality dark chocolate and eat it in moderation!
Strawberries are beautiful and sweet, I truly believe they add goodness to every dish they meet. They are also a good source of vitamin C, manganese, folate (vitamin B9), and potassium.
Whenever I go in the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking...
I feel like this cake celebrates my love for strawberries, and so, enjoy this lovely classic Strawberry Fields Forever by The Beatles

*Using the red wine is very recommended. In my opinion, it adds so much flavor and richness to the cake.
** The recipe explains how to decorate the squares to look like in the picture. Another option can be to glaze the whole cake as a whole, and cut to squares after the cake is glazed. That way the layers of the cake will be visible while serving. The cake could be served as a cake as well, and then there is, of course, no need to cut the cake at all.
Have you already tried it?
