Why I Love This Recipe



Episode Summary :

Since Yom Tov is fast approaching here is a great cake desert you can add to the end of the meal.

Show Notes:

Yom Tov has come and gone and I've been behind lately but no issue we are going to keep trudging ahead.

This episode starts with a dancing purple dinosaur..

Ok... fine you know how it, starts. The same way it always starts.

Moving on.. Bubbe tells us about how to make parave sponge cake one of the most traditional deserts around. It is used for Yom Tov, shabbos, whenever you want it, it is always available.

You can eat it plain or with desert but the key is to try to make the recipe and you will not be disappointed.

Bubbe shows us the way her mother used to do it. We get to see her bowl and her beater. Bubbe shows us that the beater is still working like the day it was bought from the store.

After beating, mixing, adding, stretching, stirring, blending and everything else involved in making a cake we take a quick look at the special cake pan used.

Now it's time for the yiddish word of the day! Oh wait, no, what is this brand new segment? Ok lets go with it, I got questions, so lets ask Bubbe!

Shoshana asks: "Bubbe, I want low fat traditional recipes!" and Bubbe responds letting her know that we do everything simple and in fact many of the ingredients are in fact low fat.

You tube fan that contacted us by AOL IM asks: "Bubbe, is grape Jelly Kosher?" The answer to this is a certain brand that begins with S 32 ounces and is Concord Grape Jelly has a kosher symbol on it.

Now it is time once again for the yiddish word of the day and what is it this time? Why Kaledz Student of course. That translates to College student. It sounds the same but as Avrom notices there is a bit of an accent to it.

That being said back to the cake. The sponge cake is served with strawberries. Yum.... strawberries, my mouth is watering as I type this.

But of course we need a story. Uncle Peretz drank 5 or 6 glasses of tea. Can you imagine how large that pot of tea is! You have to check it out for yourself on the video.

See you next time
