    Also known as "Plava" this sponge cake is kosher for Passover because it uses potato flour, kosher for passover matzo meal and pure icing sugar. Enjoy.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Went over great. I made a mistake with the sugar and added about 50% more. Still, the cake came out great. Also served pureed raspberries, fresh raspberries and whipped cream  -  18 Jul 2008

    Used different ingredients. This cake was pretty good! I couldn't find potato flour at my local supermarket and I wasn't making it for Passover so I used plain flour. The recipe says to bake for an hour, but I think that is too long (at least it is too long if using flour). The cake was a bit overdone at 50 minutes when I took it out.  -  18 Jul 2008

    This cake was pretty good! I couldn't find potato flour at my grocery store and I wasn't making it for Passover so I used white flour. The recipe says to bake for an hour, but I think that is too long (at least it is too long if using white flour). The cake was a bit overdone at 50 minutes when I took it out.  -  05 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
