Matzah Meal Latkes

I forgot to put this recipe in with the other Passover “tips.”  Here’s my twist on Matzah Meal pancakes:

  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 T orange zest
  • 3/4 C orange juice
  • 2 t sugar
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 C Matzah meal
  1. Mix together Matzah meal, salt, sugar and orange zest.
  2. Beat egg yolks and then add orange juice and mix thoroughly.
  3. Combine wet and dry ingredients and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least a half hour.
  4. After the rest, stir the wet ingredients.  If the mixture is super stiff, add a little water (like a teaspoon), and stir it in.
  5. Beat the egg whites to stiff peaks and fold into the other ingredients.
  6. Heat a well-buttered skillet or griddle to cook the latkes.

We eat these with butter and honey.
