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. While my flourless chocolate cupcakes 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!

    I am quite new in passover this year. That’s why looking for some special dishes. Really got something special from you here.
    Wishing you a happy Passover.
    You can take a look at this passover message: on this celebration. Very unique one.

    I didn’t even get to try matzoh until I was an adult, and I’m in love. I will definitely try this. (By the way, I’ve been creeping the site and not commenting, but I love it! So creative)

  6. Tara Edwardssays:

    I adore Matzoh… If it weren’t so expensive down here in the South, I’d have it all year as a staple! Back in NY I always had Matzoh in my house. It amazes me how many people hate it.

    Anyway, these look yummy. I glaze my Matzoh Brei with sugar until caramelized in the pan… not sure if I’d like fruity stuff on it, so I may have to use your liner idea with my Brei recipe and see what happens :)
