Pesach Glazed Coffee Cake


The Pesach cake you’ll want more of! Watch the video.


Prepare the Cake

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
2. Add egg whites one by one to the mixer while it is on the lowest speed. After all the whites are added, raise the speed to medium for 30 seconds and finally to the highest speed. Add the sugar and salt gradually and continue beating until soft peaks form. Set aside.
3. Beat yolks until light and lemony. Add oil and mix together. Lower speed and add the baking powder, then the liquids alternately with the potato starch. Don’t overmix. Fold in the whites gently, just until incorporated. Fold in the grated chocolate.
4. Grease a tube pan just on the bottom. Pour batter into pan and bake for 30–35 minutes or until golden. Cool before slicing.


Use a vegetable peeler to grate your chocolate and grate it over a plastic soup bowl for easy transfer and clean up.


Sifting the potato starch over the mixer as you add it to the batter will result in a lighter, more uniform cake. 



1) Use chocolate liqueur instead of the wine.

2) Instead of the grated chocolate, fold in a finely grated apple and add cinnamon and vanilla sugar to taste.

3) Sub 1/4 cup of cocoa powder (or more) for same amount of potato starch for a chocolate cake. Add another tablespoon of oil to keep the cake moist
