Flavorful Cake and Easy to Make Hi Efrat,, Thanks so much for sharing. I just made it today because the stores around us were out of all Passover cakes, cake mixes and cookies and my sweet tooth could not be denied. Your cake is quite good. A few tips: it took closer to one hour to cook. I wrapped aluminum foil around the edges of my 8 x 8 pan so it wouldn’t burn on the edges. Also I didn’t have Granny Smith so used gala or whatever we had. Use a big lemon as I did and it really tastes tangy.
