Matzo Meal Pancakes

For favorite Passover recipes from my kitchen, please see Essential Passover from Scratch: Recipes and Stories from My Mother’s Kitchen

The most delicate and elegant pancakes you’ve ever tasted, these are like little balls of buttery fluff that melt in your mouth. With a preparation time of 30 minutes, we were lucky if my mother fixed these twice during the eight days of Passover, and then we would wait another full year before tasting them again. They are very small, so plan on 8-12 pancakes per person, and more if you have competitive teenage eaters in the house.

Matzo Meal Pancakes (serves 2-3)

Mix together:

  • 1/2 c. matzo meal
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Beat together and add to matzo meal mixture:

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 c. milk

Let sit for 30 minutes. Beat the 2 egg whites until stiff and fold into mixture. Spoon batter onto a hot, buttered griddle or pan. Serve plain or with eingie.
