I make pancakes a lot during the year. It just seems wrong not to make them on Passover as well. These pancakes are not the light and fluffy ones that we have during the rest of the year. Why aren’t they? So the children should ask. Not really. Matzo meal is much heavier than regular flour. No matter – they still taste great with a bit of maple syrup.
Matzo Meal Pancakes
This batter is very thick. After you spoon it out, make sure to flatten it out so that it will cook through. You can wet a spoon if you find it's too sticky to flatten out any other way.
- matzo meal - 1 1/2 cups
- sugar - 1/4 cup
- baking powder - 4 teaspoons
- water - 3 cups
- oil - 1/2 cup
- apple sauce - 1/2 cup
- cinnamon - 1 teaspoon
- Mix all ingredients together
- Lightly oil frying pan
- Pour heaping tablespoons of batter on hot frying pan and flatten out batter
- Let cook for 2 minutes, until pancakes brown
- Carefully flip and let cook on second side another 2 minutes
- Serve warm with maple syrup
There are certain things that are hard to find for Passover. Maple syrup is one of them. I get 100% pure maple syrup from Rami Levy in Shaar Benyamin. It has an O-U P on it.
One of the ingredients is just apple.
Is that apple juice, or apple bits?
Sorry about that! It should have said apple sauce. Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve updated the recipe. Chag Sameach!
