It may be because we waited until the last minute, but my husband has been to 3 supermarkets this morning in Queens and we cann't seem to find Matza cake meal. He did find a few boxes for cake mixes that contain cake meal, all ready sweetened and with the potato starch added. We finally gave up and decided to experiment with a mix of matza meal and potato starch, whizzed together in the food processor to make it finer. I found my grandmothers hand written recipe for Pesach Orange Sponge Cake and I really want to make it for tonights seder when we welcome the newest youngest member of the family - who is named after my great aunt. Making this cake will be a way to honor the family both those who are here in body and spirit too.
Sounds hokey, but it means something to me.
