Thinly spiralized carrots are laced throughout these adorable Passover Apricot Carrot Cakelets. What makes these extra special is the addition of orange zest, orange juice and both dried apricots and cherries.
So you can see, these two recipes do share some common ingredients, but end up with totally different dishes. No, Passover Apricot Carrot Cakelets don’t have any sweet potatoes, nor prunes. You won’t miss them, I promise!
While I do enjoy tzimmes for a seder meal, I always end up with way too much. And truly, how many times can you eat tzimmes before tiring of it?
Before we talk more about this recipe, let’s take a moment to check out these fun Passover Celebration Printables I created especially for your holiday Seder tablescape!
Passover Celebration Printables, that’s what! Check out the super simple and stylish Passover Seder tablescape printables I created especially for your holiday table!
I just love to have a “theme” when I give a party in my home. When inviting friends and family for a Passover Seder, it seems fitting to do the same. This year I chose a “desert” theme with pyramids and camels on a “matzah” background. How cute is that?
I’ll tell you how to get your own set of Passover Printables a little later in this post!
OOPS! We forgot to remove the onions from the prior photo-shoot for my incredible Passover Salmon Ring (Gourmet Gefilte Fish), which does indeed have lots of onions!
AND back to the subject at hand!
That’s not really the reason I created this recipe though. My hubby and I both adore carrot cake, like a lot! As we were talking about the upcoming holiday, neither of us really had a yen for multiple days worth of tzimmes in the refrigerator!
Nuff said, and I set off on a mission. That’s when I started envisioning little “cakelets” of a matzo meal-based carrot and dried fruit mixture. (carrot cake!)
Yes, they would be perfect in my set of miniature decorative aluminum molds. I love to make composed plates of individual portioned dishes.
They can really make a holiday meal more festive, especially when garnished and presented on a lovely plate. This recipe will make 12 individual molds or one 8-cup ring mold/bundt pan.
Or you can platter them together for a lovely family-style presentation. The choice is entirely yours!
I hope you’ll try this fabulous recipe for Passover Apricot Carrot Cakelets at your seder this year. It’s so flavorful, and with an amazing texture that defies being made from matzo meal!
