Passover coffee cake recipe anyone?

Posted by on Apr. 16, 2014 at 3:08 AM

My kids loved the boxed Passover coffee cakes we got in the states....but there aren't any boxed mixes like them here and I cannot find a Passover Coffee Cake recipe for my life (I spent over an hour online this morning looking and found nothing remotely like a plain coffee cake (found plenty of apple and banana cakes...but nothing plain).

Does anyone have a Passover Coffee Cake recipe?  (It cannot be a regular coffee cake recipe - during Passover we don't use any leavening agents so no baking soda, baking powder, yeast, etc....and it cannot use regular flour.)

Have you checked Allrecipes.com?  I know they have recipes for Passover baked goods.  Not sure about coffee cake in particular.

Try just looking up Passover Cake and just making it coffee cake flavor instead of vanilla or chocolate.

Thanks for the idea though. :-)

Thanks, but that won't work.  There is nowhere to order it here.

According to Scripture, the Hebrews made such a hurried escape from Egypt there wasn't enough time to leaven their bread and bake it in the usual manner. The unleavened, flat bread they were able to take with them was the first matzo. Now, in remembrance of that hasty exodus, foods made with ordinary flour or leavening agents such as baking powder or yeast are prohibited during the Passover period.

These restrictions make the preparation of pastries and desserts a little more complicated -- you might say daunting -- than usual. Cakes, cookies and dumplings must be prepared from potato starch or matzo meal made from ground matzo. A more finely ground variation used in baking is matzo cake meal. In many recipes, such as sponge cakes, the following flour conversion measurement is helpful:

1 cup regular flour = 1/4 cup matzo cake meal or 3/4 cup potato starch.

1/2 cup regular flour = 2 tablespoons matzo cake meal or 6 tablespoons potato starch.

To add variety to the traditional sponge cake, I've created a version richly flavored with bananas. Some are pureed in the batter, while the remainder are sliced and folded into it. The top is sprinkled with a matzo-meal streusel, which can be tossed with melted butter, margarine or vegetable oil.
