Homemade Matzo

Yogurt and Honey Matzo

 

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup plain yogurt

1/4 cup orange blossom honey

1/2 tsp salt

 

Mix everything together. Break into 6 tennis-ball sized chunks. Using a rolling pin and floured pastry cloth or cutting board, roll each chunk out to about 1/8" thick rounds. Put onto cookie sheets and bake a 350 F until done -- about 8 minutes. They will have a bubbly look and be slightly browned. Recipe makes 6 matzo.

 

I don't poke holes. Matzo are really unleavened pita pockets. Matzo were round until the invention of the matzo making machine.

For Passover, just use flour and water.  The rest of the week, you can put anything you want into the matzo. Raisins, nuts, cinnamon, cheese. The only requirement is that the bread be unleavened.
