Fabulous Passover Treats

Passover is all about freedom.  And, of course, food.  At the Cake Bakes household, we're having an Easter and Seder mash-up next weekend (due to scheduling conflicts poor planning on my part) but meantime, I'm delighted to share the best of our Passover baked goods, two of which I made tonight.

Matzoh Buttercrunch
Pictured at top is the amazing matzoh buttercrunch, an addicting treat sure to torpedo diets everywhere.  It actually is a derivative of a very old American dessert (caramel and chocolate atop soda crackers), but baker/writer Marcy Goldman updated it for the holiday.  Click here for the recipe.

Farfel Muffins
Farfel muffins are a favorite of my family of origin.  Unfortunately, I've never been able to create the same texture that my grandmother achieved year after year.  But they're still quite good and I'll keep on trying.  Click here for the recipe.

Matzos Cookies 
Next up are Matzos Cookies from The Way to a Man's Heart: The Settlement Cookbook, an unusual and delicious drop cookie.  Click here for the recipe.


  1. I call it matzoh toffee and it is always a hit even if it's not Passover!Sometimes I pair it with homemade marshmallows and then I have s'mores! Great choices.
