The Passover program is a unique event that takes every single year. We have been fortunate enough to be a part of it and enjoyed it a lot amidst our Jewish and non-Jewish friends. Amidst this, we have shared with us the kosher recipes for Passover. Our vision was clear—to experience and understand this cultural difference, find out what is the specialty and why people love this period of the year. And the food is the best thing to tell you about the culture of anywhere and so is the case when we looked at the delicious recipes in Passover.
- Let’s Look at The Recipe of French Toast
Although it is your choice to go and purchase a Passover sponge cake here we want to keep things more raw and close to the tradition by bringing authenticity. The beginning was with the making of a Passover citrus sponge cake and as a total coincidence, this was our first baking period ever from scratch since we were not looking to eat the one from the box. Prepare the cake a day or two ahead before moving on to make the French toast
- Whisk together the 12 egg yolks.
2. In the next step, whisk 1-1/2 cup of white sugar along with the zest of one orange, lemon, and half cup freshly squeezed orange juice.
3. The next shift is taken for the cake meal and potato starch that are both Kosher and approved for Passover. This is now stirred into the egg yolks until a fine paste is formed. The attention is now back to the egg whiter where the whipping is kept until it becomes stiff and shiny.
4. Now with the help of a rubber spatula, you have to gently fold the egg whites into the cake batter. You can keep the pace of about 1/3rd egg whites at a time. Make sure you are focusing on the right mixing and not overdo it since the egg whites are only required to make the cake fluffy and light just in case you are not using any rising agent. Once done, now pour the cake batter into a greased cake pan.
5. The cake is then needed to be baked for an hour at 325F. That will be perfect for the batter to set and you can know this by putting in a toothpick and it should come out clean.
6. Grease the cake pan for a better job but don’t stress it since eventually, we will be making French toast only. Cover the cake and let it rest until the following morning where you can then cut it into about an inch slices ready for the French toast.
7. Take care of whisking two eggs for us, prepare the zest of orange and lemon, and then combine them all with milk to make a dipping batter.
8. Next you have to heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and then put in a bit of butter to provide the required greasing in the pan. Followed up by carefully sipping and soaking each slice of the prepared Passover citrus sponge cake in the batter first and then the hot skillet.
9. Cook these slices for the next 3-4 minutes on each side for the flipping and then, later on, cook them for the next 2-3 minutes again. You will be having a beautiful golden-brown crust.
10. Now before you serve the Passover French toast, slice up a few fresh oranges to make the perfect garnishing, along with some cinnamon, sugar, and then sprinkle it over the toast.
11. Now the first few bites of those sponge cakes will make you go eager to dig in more into those French toast. This will be even loved madly by the kids who get thrilled just with the sight of the cake.
12. Fortunately, if you have followed till here, the end product wouldn’t disappoint you. The Passover French toast will turn out an absolute delicious delicacy. The outer part of this French toast will be crisp and you can see that it reflects the tradition of French toast flavor, whereas you will find a soft insider texture, with perfect fluff and completely a cake-like texture with a fresh burst of citrus.
So there you go, a perfect kosher meal for passover programs and there’s still a lot to explore!
