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

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.
