Matzoh or Passover Bread Pudding is a community recipe submitted by CookALot and has not been tested by so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Put broken matzos in a bowl, cover with cold water and steep for 10 minutes. Drain and mash with a fork.
  • Preheat oven to 180 C/350 F. Grease an 8/9 inch square baking dish, or thereabouts. I use oblong!
  • To mashed matzos add apple, raisins, apricots, nuts. Mix well. Then add half the sugar and cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, lemon zest and juice. Mix again.
  • Beat eggs with remaining sugar for a few mins til creamy and sugar disolved. Stir in melted margerine and scrape into baking dish. Level out and scatter over the 1tbs of sugar.
  • Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean and top is browned and slightly puffed (1hr).
  • Once baked melt marmalade or jam in a pan and brush over pudding (optional) to glaze and leave to cool.
  • Serve hot with cream, room temp with tea, cold as a midnight snack!
