It's our little way to create a new family tradition and make sure it's around for years to come. Even though we are the ones making it now, we definitely still taste her love in them.
Nana's matzo meal pancakes
*1/2 cup matzo meal
*1 tbsp sugar
*3/4 cup water to start
*stainless steel pan
*butter for cooking
First thing to remember is that it will take some time perfecting this. You will need to add water often to keep the batter very thin. The stainless steel pan is going to be key and the longer it's heated with butter batch after batch, the better they will be!
Mix the matzo meal, eggs, sugar and water. Butter up your pan and start frying (this is how they looked after the 2nd batch).
DO NOT STACK. Sprinkle sugar over each pancake immediately after removing from pan. You can be fancy and use a fork, but what I love to do is roll them up and eat them with my hands while I cook more (that's how Nana taught me).
