    I'm so happy this forum is here! My grandmother (now deceased) used to make something she called a Bubbalah. It was a puffy eggy baked thingy that she served during Passover for breakfast. There was something about the taste that haunts me. It didn't taste particularly eggy, but had a subtle sweetness to it. Anyone know what this could be and a recipe for it? Thanks!

    I love bubbalech (the plural of bubbaleh)! My mom makes the best bubbalech and I have never been able to recreate her recipe. I'll talk to her on the phone later today and see if I can get her to give me the bubbaleh 411!

    Now could that be what I remember my grandmother making on Pesach? It was sweet, there were eggs in it, matzoh, she made it in the oven and it was good warm as well as cold. Have never been able recreate it and am very curious what your mother says Mirj. Will check again after Shabbos to see if you have talked to your mother about this. I dearly hope it is what I remember!

    UNREAL! For years and years and years I have tried to figure out what this was and how to make it. I'm completely blown away that you guys know what I'm talking about. My own family members had no recall of this. The taste, texture, and memory of my grandmother making this is so vivid to me. I'll be eternally indebted to any of you who can figure this one out. I'm soooooo excited (it's always the little things that mean the most)! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    If anyone is interested, I went to a B&B in No. CAL a few yrs ago and bought the book they had.

    In it was a recipe for a Blintz Casserole.. Have made it many times, super easy and good. EASIER than making blintz! lol

    Okay, did have a chance to talk to my mother this Friday, she was out. I'll catch her this week.

    Making bubalech with my mother is one of my favorite childhood memories, I used to love whipping the egg whites with the old fashioned rotary mixer we had for Passover.

    You are such a dear! I'm a patient woman anyway. I, too, can visualize myself in the kitchen with my grandmother. There was something remarkable about the way her hands worked and the taste of EVERYTHING she made with so few ingredients. I'm really so thrilled you knew what I was referring to. Thanks again.

    I think my grandmother called it "babuschke". She was from Russia. It seems we are talking about the same thing though in spite of different names. Am eagerly awaiting your mother's recipe Mirj. It would be great to make it, to go back, in smell and memory, to my childhood.

    I posted this recipe: Bubelah
    First, a lesson in Yiddish: one bubelah, two bubelach. A bubelah is something that is usually eaten for breakfast on Passover. Fluffy, eggy, with a hint of lemon in some families, savory in others, it's quintessential comfort food. With thanks to Avital P of the Israel-foods Yahoo discussion group who helped me find the basic recipe. I\'ve added my own family touches.

    I thought bubaleh was a pet name for someone - like darling.
    My yiddush is russian based where yours from?

    My Yiddish is a combination of Lithuanian and Hungarian. Bubbalah is an endearment, as in "Whatsa matta, bubbalah?"

    Thanks so much for posting the recipe. I'll let you know how it compares to what I recall. For some reason I think my grandmother used orange zest instead of lemon in hers (she used orange in a lot of her doughs). I'll experiment with your recipe and get back to you. I truly appreciate your posting this.

    Thanks a lot Mirj. Eventhough my recollection of this recipe is somewhat different I'll still try your bubaleh, sounds great. The recipe I'm looking for was with matzoh (whole, soaked and such), eggs, some flavour which I can't remember what it was (sweet). It was made in the oven, I still have the copper pan my grandmother used, it's now hanging as an ornament in the kitchen. Anyway, I mentioned before that I thought it was called babuschke but by thinking a lot about it I seem to remember that it was called pampuschke. Does that ring a bell for anyone? It must have been a Russian "speciality" since my grandparents on my mothers side came from Odessa, Russia.
    And yes, bubaleh is sweaty, darling, honey and other endearment words in both Russian and Polish Yiddish, the language I was raised on and with.
