My favorite popover recipe includes matzo meal, which is easy to find during Passover. I run it through a blender to make it fine before mixing it with the other ingredients.
Can I substitute regular wheat-based flour when matzo meal isn't available? If so, what type of flour would give the most similar taste and texture?
Note that this is not a question about whether popovers made with regular flour would be kosher. This is purely a question about baking.
In response to comments, the complete ingredients are:
- 1.5 cup cake matzoh meal
- 1.5 cup water
- .5 cup oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 7 extra-large eggs
The matzoh meal mixed with salt and sugar is stirred into boiling water/oil, after which the eggs are added. The popovers are cooked for 45-50 minutes at 400 degrees.
I have tried other recipes that use ordinary flour but do not like them nearly as much.
It sounds like none of the other options (using Wondra or grinding up matzoh) are easier than stockpiling matzoh meal or ordering it online.
