Grandma Dora’s Matzoh Pudding

4 boards of matzoh
3 cups of water
2 tablespoons of sugar (or replace with 1 tablespoon of splenda or stevia)
1/2 cup of raisins
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
3 eggs (or egg substitute)
Soak the matzoh. Drain liquid from matzoh. Add eggs, sugar, raisins, cinnamon and then pour contents into a hot greased pan (using Pam or other oil Kosher for Passover). After 3 minutes on medium head, it will form into a thick pancake. You’ll then take a spatula and check the bottom to see if it’s lightly browned. Next, use a dinner plate, cover the pan, invert the cake and put it back in the pan to brown on the other side.
Once it’s complete, put it on a plate, slice it up and serve with syrup or it can be eaten on it’s own since it’s so delicious!
