Matzo Ball Soup

 

Ingredients (10 servings):

2 (10 ounce) packages matzo crackers

1/2 cup butter

6 eggs

Matzo Ball Soup

Matzo Ball Soup

salt and pepper to taste

3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

2 onions, minced

5 ounces matzo meal

96 ounces chicken broth

 

Directions:

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
  2. Break matzo crackers into small pieces, and place in a large bowl. Add water to cover; allow to soak for a few minutes, until soft. Drain off excess water.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat and stir in drained matzos; stir until mixture is dry and slightly brown. Remove from heat, and mix in eggs, salt and pepper to taste, parsley, and onions.
  4. Mix in just enough matzo meal to make mixture hold together. Roll one golf ball-size matzo ball. Place matzo ball in the boiling water to test the mixture. The ball must rise to the top of the water and not break apart. If it does not rise, then too much matzo meal was added. In this case, add another beaten egg to the mixture and try again. When desired consistency is reached, roll all of mixture into golf ball size spheres.
  5. In a large saucepan, bring chicken broth to a slow boil over medium heat; add balls to broth. Serve soup as the balls rise to the top of the broth.

Flourless Chocolate Cake

 

Ingredients (10 inch round cake):

1/2 cup water

1/4 teaspoon salt

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake

3/4 cup white sugar

18 (1 ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate

1 cup unsalted butter

6 eggs

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 F (150 C). Grease one 10 inch round cake pan and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat combine the water, salt and sugar. Stir until completely dissolved and set aside.
  3. Either in the top half of a double boiler or in a microwave oven melt the bittersweet chocolate. Pour the chocolate into the bowl of an electric mixer.
  4. Cut the butter into pieces and beat the butter into the chocolate, 1 piece at a time. Beat in the hot sugar-water. Slowly beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Have a pan larger than the cake pan ready, put the cake pan in the larger pan and fill the pan with boiling water halfway up the sides of the cake pan.
  6. Bake cake in the water bath at 300 F (150 C) for 45 minutes. The center will still look wet. Chill cake overnight in the pan. To unmold, dip the bottom of the cake pan in hot water for 10 seconds and invert onto a serving plate.
