This week’s post at Smitten Kitchen was the answer to my prayers. It’s Passover again, what should I bring to the Seder? Not only does it need to be Passover approved but also dairy free. I usually protest dairy free desserts. Too often they’ve subbed in scary alternatives like non dairy cream, vegetable oils, and cool whip. No, thank you, please pass me some fresh fruit instead. But this time around, yes, please and thank you, Deb Perelman, for this passover dessert good enough for even non restrictive ingredient occasions. The only change I made was to use coconut whipped cream, which honestly, is revelatory, and if I had enough I would have covered the entire thing, but instead opted for some between the layers and a healthy dose on top.
