You can always be sure a Passover cake has eggs in it. This one has 9. My friends and I usually have an unofficial contest every year, to see how many dozens and dozens of eggs we've gone through over the holiday. This is a pretty yummy cake. The pecans are optional, but don't leave them out!

This cake was excellent. I made it last year for Passover and my husband and other friends and relatives loved it. The only thing I will do differently this year is to chop the pecans into smaller pieces. Excellent recipe!
