Linka's Cake Recipe (Linkoz Kek)

This is the back of the recipe I posted on Friday. Initially I thought maybe there was more to the recipe on the first side, but I think its just a fairly simple sugar cookie type recipe. My best guess for this recipe is linkoz cake, the second word is DEFINITELY cake, but I'm not sure about the first.

Linkoz Cake

1 tbsp coffee
10 eggs separated
Beat the whites
11 spoons ?????
10 spoons sugar
4 tsp MATZAH MEAL! (I'm impressed with myself for this one :-) )

Glaze for Egg yolk?

4 ????? powder sugar
4 tablespoons what?
3 sticks margarine (What could be bad with 3 sticks of margarine?)

Completed Recipe

Linka's Cake
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee
  • 10 eggs, separated - whites beaten
  • 11 spoons of nuts
  • 10 spoons of sugar
  • 4 tsp matzah meal
  • 4 squares of chocolate
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 3 sticks margarine

Brett, this is Bubba's Passover cake. I have the recipre slightly differently and will send it to you. The "noc" is "nuts"

Linka's cake is the pesach cake we love so much. It is just that Linka had it as a 3 layer cake with a flakey dough center or yellow cake center. Bubba refined this over the years to come up with the cake recipe and chocolate glaze that Gaby does every year.

I think that "2 tebelspun kofi draj" is 2 tablespoons of dry coffee, rather than brewed.

And here's what I think the glaze is:

4 egg yolks
4 pieces of chocolate
4 tbsp. powdered sugar
3 sticks margarine (!!!)

I came to the same conclusion as Sam that the word "draj" means dry coffee (instant, probably, which I've seen in other recipes), and also that "czaklet" is chocolate.

I'm sure the results are divine, but the recipe "cards" themselves are delicious all by themselves! I have a similar stack that I put into a binder, and which I use all the time. I'd be happy to share them with you if you would care to get in touch with me. :)
