Pesach Baking Can be Easy

Baking for Pesach is somewhat challenging for some, but if you have the right recipes, it is fairly easy. I highly recommend buying a very good mixer with two bowls because so many of the recipes require separating eggs. If you are a Pesach “stayathomer,” tell your husband this is not a luxury, but a necessity. Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!!!

Chocolate Marshmallow Rollup

1 bag (10 ounces) pareve chocolate chips

1 stick margarine (4 ounces)

1 bag miniature marshmallows

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Melt chocolate over a double boiler pan or in a microwave. Be careful not to burn the chocolate. Check your melt setting on your microwave. Add margarine to warm melted chocolate; stir slowly until melted.

Let mixture cool. Then gently stir in marshmallows and nuts (Marshmallows should not melt!) Pour into one end of a sheet of parchment paper, roll into a log and freeze. When completely frozen, slice into 1/4” – 1/2” rounds. This looks so pretty when cut.

5 tbls. potato starch

½ cup of sugar

powdered sugar

Beat whites till foamy. Add sugar until mixture peaks. Reduce mixer to low. Fold in potato starch. Pour into a prepared (with parchment paper/sprayed) cookie sheet with lip. Bake at 350˚ for 20-25 minutes. When done, have prepared 2 towels or a large bath towel on a table sprinkled with powdered sugar and turn the cake out upside down on towel. Peel off paper and roll lengthwise in towel. Let cake cool.

Then unroll your cake; spread mixture on top and re-roll. You can freeze the roll or you can serve as is or make a chocolate drizzle for top if you desire.
