  1. Pass each matzo sheet under cool running water briefly, then crumble into a large bowl. Stir in 1 cup milk, eggs, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla extract to form evenly moistened batter. Add more milk if batter is too dry.
  2. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Scoop a generous spoonful of dough onto skillet and flatten with a spatula. Cook until golden brown on each side, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can make this sugar-free by using stevia and almond milk in place of white sugar and milk. You also can substitute flavored creamers for an interesting outcome!
  • Use regular or whole wheat matzo, as desired.
  • Use margarine instead of butter, if desired.
  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.
