Passover celebrates our freedom from slavery in Egypt and I love how the entire ceremony presents objects that represent various things about the story. If you don't know the story of Passover, just run out and watch the movie, The Prince of Egypt. First of all, its a great movie, second, it does a great job of telling the story and third, it has awesome music. I even watched this movie while I was in Hebrew school.

Flourless Chocolate Cake
1 lb of chocolate (we used half bittersweet and half semi-sweet)
1 cup hazelnut liqueur
1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350 and line or lightly grease a 9 inch springform pan.
2. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, stir the chocolate, liqueur and butter until melted and smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Remove from heat.
3. In a large bowl, beat eggs with the sugar on medium-high for 5 minutes or until pale yellow and fluffy. Slowly pour in the chocolate mixture and beat on medium until just combined.
4. Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 1 hour. Cake should look crisp on the sides and an inserted toothpick should come out with a few crumbs. Remove and let cool in pan for 1 hour. Top with powdered sugar.
