Step 1: Know what's not kosher Know which ingredients are not allowed during Passover: wheat, rye, barley, spelt, and oats, meaning that most kinds of flour can't be used. Leavening agents like yeast and baking powder are also a no-no. Step 2: Learn substitutions Learn how to make substitutions for forbidden ingredients, like a combination of matzo meal and potato starch in place of flour. Find substitution lists in kosher cookbooks and on kosher websites. Tip Avoid the common mistake of using too much matzo meal in dessert recipes; it makes them too heavy. Step 3: Go nuts Make desserts that rely on finely ground nuts to take the place of flour, or to serve as crust base for cheesecake. Tip Combine 1/3 cup of granulated sugar with a 1/2 teaspoon potato starch and blend them together in a food processor or coffee grinder to make kosher for Passover powdered sugar. Step 4: Count on chocolate Count on dark chocolate to save the day! Bake a delicious flourless chocolate cake, or make brownies using matzo meal or cake meal. Tip Turn plain matzo into delectable crunch bars with the addition of dark chocolate and caramel. Step 5: Use egg whites Make goodies that attain height and airiness from beaten egg whites rather than leavening agents, like a sponge cake, meringues, or macaroons. Step 6: Focus on fruit Focus on fruit-based desserts, like sorbets, honey-drizzled fruit with walnuts, or fruit compote. Did You Know? One of the largest Seders in the world takes place in Kathmandu, Nepal and involves 2,000 people.
