Cast your vote for Lemon Sponge Cake with Glazed Strawberries


  • 9 eggs, separated, room temperature
  • 1 zest of a lemon
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup + extra for flouring pan sifted matzo cake meal
  • 1 1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup kosher for Passover confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated lemon zest, separate from other lemon zest, for the glaze
  • 1 - 2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice, separate from other lemon juice, for the glaze
  • 3 cups strawberries, washed, cored & halved
  • 1 cup apricot jam
  • 1 1/2 tbsp water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a 10 inch spring form pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and flour the sides using the sifted matzo cake meal.
  2. Whip the egg whites until soft peaks are formed in a mixer attached with a whisk (whip). Then, add ½ cup of sugar and continue to whip it until it is still and glossy.
  3. Whip the egg yolks and ¼ cup of sugar in another bowl until it is light and fluffy. Add in the egg whites and then gently fold in the ground almonds, chopped almonds, matzo meal, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  4. Get the buttered spring form pan and pour in the mixture into it. After that, bake it until it is dry and a little spongy in its center. This will be a good 40 minutes and another 15 minutes for the cooling process. Once cool, remove the cake and let it sit in a wire rack.
  5. Get a bowl enough to fit in the ingredients for the glaze. This is a simple procedure since what you need to do is simply to add confectioner's sugar, vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp of lemon zest, then stir in the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth. Add lemon juice until you are sure that the glaze is pourable. Spread the glaze on top of the cake and do not hesitate to pour in the whole glaze mixture. Once done on the top, spread the trickling glaze on the sides using a spatula. Let the glaze harden before serving it.
  6. Place the cake in a cake serving platter.
  7. Boil the water and the jam in a medium sized saucepan. Then, add all the strawberries in one swift motion and then mix well using a spatula until the strawberries are evenly coated.
  8. Pour the strawberry mixture into the center of the cake and spread it to form a circle.
  9. Cool and serve.
