There are some terrible cakes that come out over Passover–either with ingredients missing or made with matzo meal–because flour and raising agents aren’t allowed. This one is made with whole matzo crackers and it is surprisingly good! Our mother makes it every Pesach (Passover) and keeps it in the fridge for the duration of the festival, so every time you need something sweet you can help yourself to a slice. The delicious flavour comes from the Kiddush wine–a sweet red wine drunk every Shabbat (Jewish Sabbath) or religious festival. The matzo is soaked in the wine, smeared with a salty, chocolate spread and stacked in layers before being left to set. The white, horizontal stripes of matzo look beautiful when sliced.
