What a beautiful morning!
I have been counting down the days waiting for this calm, quiet, Sunday to arrive. The BOY and I have NO SET PLANS for today, which is an amazing feeling. For the second day in a row, I didn’t set an alarm although the BOY and I were up earlier than we expected. I love a quiet Sunday morning! Did I mention that already?
One reason I most likely woke up early…a grumbling tummy! The answer to that problem…Passover Pancakes!
My mom found these Passover recipes a few years back. Last year, I tried the Sweet Cheese Pancakes, and the BOY and I were pleasantly surprised with how good they were.
It sounds odd to use cottage cheese as a main ingredient for pancakes, but I promise you, it works. I don’t even like cottage cheese and these sweet pancakes are delicious! Plus they are super easy to make. Stir together all of your ingredients. I cut the recipe in half and there were still plenty of pancakes for two of us.
Since I haven’t been eating a lot of dairy (and I am hoping to get in a run this afternoon), I made myself a few small pancakes. The BOY is feeling better and has finally found his appetite. He requested chocolate chip pancakes, and I threw in a few butterscotch chips as well. Chocolate and butterscotch make a perfect pair!
My plain pancakes turned out wonderful…just like I remembered from last year. You can’t even tell they are made with matzah meal!
I chopped up some fresh strawberries to go with our breakfast while I finished frying a batch of the BOY’s pancakes.
His pancakes tasted dynamic, sweet and dessert-like! The perfect combination for a special holiday breakfast!
I topped the pancakes with fresh strawberries and powdered sugar. I declared these pancakes the BEST Passover breakfast EVER eaten!
The BOY immediately dug right into his pancakes, and he definitely agreed they were incredible!
These pancakes are quickly becoming our Passover breakfast tradition! During a week of bland food, they are a nice change of pace!
How are you spending your Easter Sunday?

1 cup matzah meal
1/4 cup Turbinado sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg white
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Chocolate chips (optional)
-Combine all ingredients in one bowl. Batter will be lumpy.
-Stir in optional additions (chocolate chips, nuts, banana, etc.) I think pumpkin would be wonderful in these pancakes!

-Top with strawberries and anything else you enjoy.
