FRUIT CASSEROLE
BY THE AUTHOR: "I first came across this recipe as a low-cholesterol concept for Pesach cooking. My family loved it, but I found it horribly sweet. Because the dried fruits are themselves so sweet, I think the sugar can be cut to 3/4 cup; even a 1/2 cup. My guess is that the oil could also be cut to 3/4 or 2/3 cup. Other fruits also can be substituted. I used dried pears, for example, when I couldn't find pineapple."
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/2 cup prunes
1/2 cup dried pineapple
1/2 cup raisins
3 apples, pared and sliced
9 egg whites
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup fine matza meal
Cinnamon
Put the apricots, prunes and pineapple in a bowl. Pour boiling water over them to cover and let stand for at least one hour. Drain. Add the raisins and sliced apples. Beat the egg whites, adding sugar gradually, to a stiff meringue. Add the oil and matza meal. Mix gently but thoroughly. Fold the batter into the fruit. Transfer to an oiled, glass baking dish (about 12" x 15"). Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 F/160 C.

CHOCOLATE MATSO TORTE
It is truly amazing how creative we can be when denied flour. But after all, as we approach the end of the 20th century, we know that it is truly chocolate that counts, not flour. After all, we can live a week without bread, but a week without chocolate?
4 medium eggs, separated
1/2 cup (125 grams) sugar
1/2 lb (1/4 kilo) blanched almonds, grated finely
1/2 cup (125 grams) cocoa
1/2 lb (1/4 kilo) raisins
1/3 cup (80 grams) Matzo Cake Meal
1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh orange juice (not from concentrate)
1/4 cup (60 ml) white wine
Beat the sugar and egg yolks until very light. Add the almonds, cocoa, raisins and Matzo Meal. Mix well. Add the orange juice and wine and mix again. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold in to the mix. Pour into a spring form pan and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
