What a delicious pessach cake. Made this for a party I had on Pessach and got loads of compliments. It presents itself beautifully!

Looks like the one from the O.S. cookbook, but I think that one uses walnuts. It's delicious. If you don't use cocoa on Pesach, but use coffee, substitute coffee powder for the cocoa. If not, you can fill with 7-minute frosting. You can add a few drops of beet juice to color it a beautiful pink. Beet juice is used in red food coloring!
