Matzoh Brei Cupcakes for Passover

Passover is not a cupcake kind of holiday.  However, there’s no reason not to sneak them onto the Passover menu in unexpected places.  In past years, I’ve brought you charoset cupcakes and gefilte fish cupcakes, and given you a recipe for flourless chocolate cupcakes that are worth crossing the Red Sea for.  This year, I’ve created Passover breakfast cupcakes – matzo brei cupcakes.

What Are Matzo Brei Cupcakes?

I used these matzoh cups for matzoh brei cupcakes,
but you could fill them with anything – get creative!

Matzoh brei cupcakes are made from edible molded matzoh cupcake liners stuffed with matzoh brei and “frosted” with your topping of choice (I went for a variety of jams).  My toddler taste tested them (he’s young enough to not be upset about eating matzoh pre-Passover) and he gave them the thumbs up!
