Matzo Cake (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: varies

dark chocolate bars or chips
sweet wine

Melt the chocolate gently in the microwave or double-boiler. While that's going on, soak the matzo in wine. (I've never tried it this way, but I'm sure grape juice would work just as well as wine and should probably be used if the cake is for young children.)

To assemble the cake, place a wine-soaked matzo on a plate, spread chocolate all over the matzo, top with another wine-soaked matzo, spread more chocolate on the top matzo, and so on. You can make as many layers as you like.

This is incredibly good, especially after it sits for a day or two.

Poster's Notes:
We also have Pesach birthdays nearly every year. Here's a cake that was first made for us by an Israeli friend who says that this is a common Pesach dessert in Israel. This cake has but three ingredients and is relatively simple to prepare.
