During the seven days of Passover, Jews must make all of their baked goods with unleavened bread (matzo) to recall the Exodus from Egypt when there was no time to let bread rise. This matzo waffle is filled with traditional charoset, which serves as a reminder of slave labor and symbolizes the mortar used for Egyptian building. Charoset with bitter herbs (horseradish) is used to remember the cruelty of slavery.

  • Matzo Waffle Batter (see recipe below)
  • Charoset Filling
  • 1 cup finely shredded or grated apple
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons sweet kosher wine
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix apple, pecans, wine, honey, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. 

Prepare waffle batter as directed. Preheat Stuffler® stuffed waffle maker with waffle tongs in unit for 10 minutes. 

Spread about 1/3 cup batter into waffle maker so bottom grids and waffle divider are thinly but completely covered. Place 1/2 cup charoset filling onto batter leaving a thin margin around edge. Place small dabs of horseradish on top of filling. Spread additional batter over filling until it reaches the top of the square projections on the waffle tongs. Close waffle maker and flip. Cook for 8 minutes. Remove stuffed waffle to plate.
