Apple Matzo Cake
Adapted from Everyday Food

Nonstick Spray
3 large eggs, separated, plus 3 large yolks
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
3 cups grated Granny Smith apples (from 6 peeled apples), squeezed dry
1 cup matzo meal (make your own by processing plain matzo pieces in food processor until finely ground)
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 Tablespoon brandy
2 Tablespoons honey
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350o F.  Lightly coat an 8″ springform pan with nonstick spray.  In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat 6 egg yolks, sugar and salt until thick and pale, about 3 minutes.  Fold in apples, matzo meal, lemon zest and brandy.

In another medium bowl, with clean beaters, beat 3 egg whites until stiff peaks form, about 4 minutes.  With a rubber spatula, gently fold egg whites into apple mixture and transfer batter to pan.  Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with pecans.  Bake until golden brown and set in center, 45 to 50 minutes.  Let cake cool completely in pan on a wire rack.  To serve, run a small knife around edge of pan, remove cake and slice.
