Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a deep mixing bowl, beat the eggs well.
  2. Add the salt and cold water, whisking well and thoroughly.
  3. Mix in the matza meal. The batter should be like a thin pancake batter.
  4. Pour 1/4 inch of oil into a 12-inch skillet.
  5. Heat over medium-high heat.
  6. Pour 1/4 cup batter into the skillet. It will spread into a little pancake.
  7. Repeat until you have four or five pancakes frying.
  8. Regulate the heat, adjusting it to prevent burning as the bumuelos cook.
  9. Fry 3-4 minutes on each side and drain the bumuelos on paper towels.
  10. Serve with honey poured over the pancakes and sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
