Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes


  • CRUST:
  • 3 sticks margarine, room temperature
  • 3/4 c. Passover powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. cake meal
  • 1 c. potato starch
  • 8 eggs
  • 4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. potato starch
  • 3/4 c. lemon juice


1. Combine crust ingredients. Press into a sprayed 11x17 inch pan.
2. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

this is a seder staple!!, Member usagi636

This recipe gets made every year for my family's seder!! It's easy and tastes delicious. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars, is that I have to remember every year, that I can never find an 11x17 pan (I don't think it exists...atleast not in my area.) I use two 9x9 (I believe) square pans and they work perfectly. The lemon doesn't overshadow the crust, the flavors blend perfectly.
