Passover Pancakes

In this blog, I’ll be sharing my favorite Passover Pancake Recipe. As Passover progresses, I find myself navigating a matzo maze, yearning for a taste of something different. These pancakes make a delightful addition to the holiday breakfast lineup, and I enjoy alternating between matzo brei and matzo granola for a delicious variety.

Some families affectionately call this Passover pancake recipe ‘Bubaleh,’ a term in Yiddish used to lovingly address a cherished individual, particularly a child or a sweetheart. What a perfect name for these holiday pancakes!

So grab your favorite toppings, and let’s whip up some delicious pancakes that are Kosher for Passover with Matzo meal.

These Passover pancakes make a delightful addition to the holiday breakfast lineup.
Kosher Pareve or Dairy


Optional toppings: powdered sugar, syrup, fresh berries, and whipped cream


    • In a small saucepan, bring to a gentle boil 1 cup of milk (reserve the remaining 1/2 cup for later use).
    • Combine matzo meal, sugar, and salt in a small bowl.
    • Pour the boiling milk over the mixture. Stir and set aside for 5 minutes (the mixture will thicken).
    • Mix in the eggs, vanilla, and oil. It may be difficult to mix at first because the mixture is thick, but after a minute of stirring with a whisk, it will become uniform without lumps.
    • Add the remaining 1/2 cup of cold milk and baking powder to the mixture. Whisk until the batter is smooth and well combined.
    • Heat a frying pan over medium heat and lightly grease it with butter or oil. Pour the pancake batter using a ladle or a measuring cup with a spout. Tilt the frying pan slightly in one direction as you pour the batter to help spread it thinly and evenly across the surface of the pan. The batter is thin and will spread rapidly.
    • Cook the pancakes for about 2-3 minutes on one side. Wait until bubbles form on the surface. Then, carefully flip them over and cook the other side until golden brown.
    • Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and cover them with a clean towel to keep them warm.
