Two weeks ago I came home for Rosh Hashana. Knowing my mom’s love of chocolate covered candied orange peels, I decided to make my Chocolate Orange Cake for the first night of Chag. But I felt like a plain old cake wasn’t enough, it didn’t provide the beauty and respect the holiday – and my mother – deserve. So I decided I’d jazz it up. But how? It’s gotta be pareve, because our whole dinner menu revolved around meat. We’re Bukharian. We stuff anything that moves with meat. And then it hit me. Why can Tofu cream cheese only be used to shmear on bagels with some scallions, or else used to make a non dairy cheesecake?! Hello, Tofutti… I think you and I are gonna be better friends from here on. Oh and btw… Ina Garten is totally right. Adding coffee to chocolate completely enhances the chocolate flavor.
