When the mixture is bubbly and frothy, add 5 pounds flour. Slowly pour in 1 cup vegetable oil. Measure out 4 tablespoons kosher salt and, traditionally, discard one pinch. Add the remainder of the salt to the mixture. Knead the dough until it is very smooth, adding flour if the dough is too sticky, or oil if too dry. Oil the sides of the bowl, and roll dough around until coated. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place for 1 hour, or until dough has doubled in size. When it has risen, punch a fist gently into dough to deflate. Shape into eight loaves and bake in lined pans at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
Another simple Passover recipe is Matzo Brei. To make this, pour 2 cups boiling water over 6 matzos. Drain and squeeze. Saute 1 chopped onion and 1 minced garlic clove over low heat. Beat 4 to 5 eggs in a bowl, and add 1 tablespoon chopped parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Add matzo, onions and garlic to egg mixture. Mix well. Drop 1/4 cup batter into frying pan, flipping pancake once.Learn more about Cooking
