  • 250 grams of flour
  • 140ml water
  • Plastic foil
  • pasta machine
  • Baking tray with baking paper

Rutger: “Actually, I never thought I wanted to bake matzos myself, until I was brainstorming for fun things for Easter breakfast. I am really fond of matzos and around Easter I always have them in the house. I like them best with a thick layer of butter and brown sugar.

After some searching around, making matzos turned out not to be that difficult. It is not more than water and flour, it does not even contain salt. The only thing I kept running into was that the matzos were difficult to roll out really thin, so I was left with too thick and hard matzos during several attempts.

But suddenly I had a eureka moment: the pasta machine! There you can roll out the dough (which is very similar in consistency to pasta dough) very nice and thin. So dive into the kitchen for this Easter and bake your own matzos this year with this easy recipe.”

Make your own matzos

Mix 250 grams of flour with 140 ml of water and knead this for 5 to 10 minutes into a smooth dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for half an hour.

Preheat the oven to 240°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Take a small ball of dough (of about 30 grams) and roll it out with the pasta machine, just like you would with lasagna sheets. Start on the thickest setting and go a notch thinner each time.

Depending on your pasta machine, continue until the dough is nice and thin (with me setting 5 out of 8). If the dough is very sticky, you can use some extra flour to prevent this.

Place the dough on the baking tray and prick it regularly with a fork. Bake the matzos for 7 to 12 minutes. To prevent the matzos from warping during the last few minutes, you can place an (oven) grid on them halfway through the baking time. Let the matzos cool on a wire rack and store them airtight.
