I tried making a rice flour pancake a few days ago, and it turned out horrible. But I still wanted a pancake! So I finally decided to give Passover-friendly pancakes another go, this time using a recipe for matzah meal pancakes from Food.com. I scaled the recipe down to one serving since I was just cooking for myself.
This pancake was totally awesome! It blew the bitter taste of the rice flour pancake fail out of my memory. (Okay, I still remember the failure, and it’ll probably scar my memory forever. But at least now I have a more recent success to balance it out!)
I think part of the reason I liked this pancake so much is because the taste of the matzah meal along with the strawberry jam is very reminiscent of the Passover rolls my family has always made using matzah meal. As a kid with no health worries, I used to gobble those guys down by the bucketful, often spread with jam. Childhood memories often evoke good feelings, and this matzah meal pancake was no exception.
Okay, enough rambling! On to the recipe.
Single-Serve Matzah Meal Pancake
- 2 tbls matzah meal
- 1 tbl skim milk
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tbl Peanut Butter & Co. brand White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter, softened
- strawberry jam
- about 3 fresh strawberries, sliced
Place all batter ingredients in a small bowl. Beat the egg into the other ingredients and mix it all up. Let it rest for five minutes. (I actually mixed some strawberry slices into the batter, and used the rest for topping.)
Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray. Over medium heat, drop batter onto pan and cook just as you would a regular pancake until golden brown.
Smother with jam and top with strawberries. Bon appetit!
