Sybil Zashin, Elliott’s and my honorary cousin, offered this terrific traditional Passover dessert, a delicious combination of pecans and coffee. The cake is spongy and exceptionally moist and dense, with an unusually high proportion of pecans. Light toasting really brings out their unique flavor. Nielsen-Massey (see Ingredients Sources) makes a pure coffee extract that is the essence of coffee flavor.
