While searching for Passover recipes I came across this one for doughnuts. Who can pass up a doughnut? : ) It sounded interesting enough to share. Because this is my first time making them, the servings indicated are a guess-timate.
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup oil
- 1 cup matzo meal
- 3 eggs
- cinnamon-sugar mixture
- chopped nuts (optional)
- Bring water, salt, sugar and oil to a boil.
- Stir in matzo meal.
- Remove from flame, cool slightly.
- Beat in eggs, one at a time.
- Grease hands and roll dough into balls 2- inches in diameter.
- Sprinkle tops with mixture of sugar and cinnamon (and nuts).
- Dip finger in cold water and press a hole in center of each ball.
- Place on greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 375 degrees F for one hour.
This was an interesting recipe. I have some leftover matzo meal that I'm searching for interesting ways to use. I found the dough super sticky and kind of hard to use so I just put it on the tray like drop cookies and cooked it for the full hour. We found these to be tasty but they were like the shells of a cream puff instead of soft like a doughnut. Also, an hour seemed to be much too long. I'd make these again and call them puffs, and start checking at 45 minutes. Thanks for posting!
