My son’s Primary morah had each student choose his favorite recipe to share for the letter “R” and then compiled a recipe book for them to take home. I loved seeing what each five-year-old’s favorite was.
I actually found a place for most of those favorites in my own recipe book. This one is Moishe K.’s favorite, and I could tell just by looking at the recipe that it was going to be a keeper. However, when I made it the first time I mistakenly omitted the eggs that the original recipe called for. I waited with bated breath to taste my flop but, lo and behold, it was delicious, fudgy and moist!
Thank you, Shoshana K., for the delicious recipe, and Morah N. Izaak, for the adorable alphabet learning experience and everything you taught our precious boys!
