Frozen Lemon Wafer Cake Passover Recipe

Frozen Lemon Wafer Cake (Kosher for Passover and Gluten-Free)

I’m a firm believer in Passover desserts that don’t taste like matzah. (Unless it’s “matzah crack” – then tasting like matzah, slathered in caramel and chocolate, is totally fine.)

I’m also a huge fan of lemon in my Pesach desserts. (I love the tangy bite of a lemon merengue, for example.)

Which is why it was kinda love at first sight for me when I discovered this amazing recipe for Frozen Lemon Wafer Cake in the brand new Passover cookbook, Passover Made Easy.

Written by the talented duo of Leah Schapira, founder & owner of, and Victoria Dwek, managing editor of Whisk Magazine, Passover Made Easy takes a modern approach to Pesach recipes – including this mouth-watering lemon cake.

As you can see from the glamour shot of the lemon cake, the photography in Passover Made Easy is stunning (I’m a sucker for a good photo in a cookbook, aren’t you?).

Passover Made Easy

Their breezy writing style is a total joy. The handwritten font is endearing. And the fact that the soft-covered cookbook opens landscape-style? That’s just yet another indication that Passover Made Easy is most definitely not your same old Passover milieu.

You can order Passover Made Easy on Amazon right now for only $10.87 – and it ships for free with Amazon Prime or via Super Saver.

  14. My favorite dessert are homemade fruit ices- you puree the fruits, water, sugar and I forget what else and freeze. So easy, delicious, and is really beautiful when you layer them with 3 different colors (strawberries, mango and kiwi are my fav). Also applesauce with pomegranates (if you can find, I live in warmer-weather areas so we can sometimes get them)!

    But I don’t have facebook as my job won’t let me (privacy concerns and all). But if I did I would give your site a definite “LIKE”!!! Do I still have a chance at these giveaways? I really like your site and look at it daily!

  15. I love making “good for you berry truffles” from – use any combo of dried fruit and nut, but prune/almond is my fav. For a dairy variation, here’s a something that’s easy and perfect: stuff roasted almonds into prunes. Layer about 1/4 of the prunes in a single layer in a pretty dish. Cover with sour cream. Repeat until done with prunes. Sprinkle with any garnish you feel like, and refrigerate for at least a few hours. Yum!
