Eran’s Mom’s Famous Matza Cake – עוגת מצה


Matza Cake Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa
  • ¼ Cup Coffee, strong and warm
  • 2 Sticks Butter (or Non-Dairy Buttery Spread)
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract

  • Grape Juice, Orange Juice or sweet wine


  1. Take the butter (or non-dairy substitute) out of the fridge and let soften at room temperature.
  2. Mix the cocoa into the coffee and stir until well mixed, then let cool.
  3. When butter is soft, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and combine well (best with a mixer) until a rich, and slightly thickened butter cream is formed. Matza Cake Ready to Layer
  4. Pour grape juice, orange juice or sweet kiddush wine into a dish large enough to dip the Matza. You can use 1, 2 or all 3 liquids.
  5. Dip both sides of a piece of Matza in the liquid, then place on a flat surface lined with plastic wrap.
  6. Spread the butter cream on the Matza.

  7. Repeat steps 5 & 6 until you use up the butter cream. The thicker the layer of butter cream, the sweeter the cake will be, but you should have at least 8 pieces of Matza.
  8. Align all of the layers of the Matza so that it will be easier to cut.
