Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

  • Matzah

    Though I'd share my matzah recipe:

    For each piece:

    40 g flour
    27 g water (68% hydration)

    Mix just long enough for the water to be absorbed and the dough to hold together (half a minute by hand, then knead/mold for a minute or so).

    Roll to around 10" diameter, then straight into a 700-800 F oven.

    They bake in a minute or so. Traditionally, matzah is in the oven within 18 minutes of water contacting flour. If you mix one at a time, these are fully cooked in less than five. With no fermentation whatsoever and cooked in a wood fired over, matzahs are delicate, with a hint of smoke.

    Alan, can you post a picture? I did a google search on images and it looks like a cracker?

      Yes please do... These sound so much more interesting then store bought ones.

        Here are pictures from today - quickly palm-kneading a ball, poking holes (to avoid matzahs inflating like pita), and baking.

        I had some trouble today with parts (usually the middle) burning before the rest was crisp. Roll these out evenly, and keep your fire low. Next time, I may try letting the fire go out and baking these at a lower, more even temperature.

          I'm tempted to try at 550 in the oven with my double stone setup. We always use these on Holy Thursday, and I hate to buy them.

          But I hate to buy any bread!

            Resurrecting an old thread here, but thanks Alan for posting this. Made Matzohs today in the WFO, and they were awesome, and really fun to make.

              Yes you are, it's around 4 years old - I think that's a record

              It looks like it worked - what do you do with them?

                I like them with butter and honey, or munch on them plain. You?
