Serves : 8                                       Preparation time : 45 minutes


  • 2 cups                        Matzo cake meal
  • 2 teaspoons              cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons              baking soda
  • 1 cup                          brown sugar
  • 1 cup                          shortening
  • 6                                 eggs, separated
  • 6 cups                        carrot, grated
  • 2 teaspoons              salt

Sift together dry ingredients. Cream sugar and shortening. Beat egg yolks until pale. Alternately add yolks and dry ingredients to creamed mix. Stir in carrots and fold in beaten egg whites. Grease loaf pan and pour mixture into a pan. Cook at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

NOTES : Well, I think this is Nana’s recipe. She doesn’t say what pan to use, but as I recall it was a loaf pan. also don’t forget to beat the egg whites until stiffish. I wonder if the cream of tartar is beaten with the whites, or added with the dry ingredients? I’m sure the cream of tarter is beaten with the whites! I think it stabilizes the whites. Whatever, it probably doesn’t matter. This has always been a favorite passover dish of mine, but not too many other people seem to like it very much. And note that this ‘pudding’ is not a dessert, but a side dish.
