Sure, matzo brei is delicious – but have you tried chocolate matzo brei? Stacey Hart shares one of her Pesach favourites—a sweet twist on a classic dish. And best of all, this recipe is simple enough that children can make it with just a little bit of supervision.


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large square matzo cracker
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1 ripe banana
  • Chocolate spread


  • Break the matzo into large bite size pieces and put into a bowl.
  • Pour cold water on the top of the matzo to cover it.
  • Leave for 5 minutes.
  • In another bowl mash half of your banana (or use a blender to puree it).
  • In another larger bowl crack the egg.
  • Squeeze out the excess water from the matzo with your hands and put the matzo in the bowl with the egg.
  • Add 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder.
  • Add the mashed banana.
  • Whisk together with a fork until combined.
    • Children can do these first steps largely on their own, but an adult should take over for the next few.
  • In a small saucepan add a little butter and melt gently.
  • When the pan is medium hot carefully pour in the Matzo Brei mix.
  • Fry for around 1 ½ - 2 mins each side until cooked but not burnt!.
  • Slide off onto a plate.
  • Top with chocolate spread and the other half of the banana sliced or diced
  • Eat straight away!
