Matzo cake meal is actually very fine and is used as a substitute for flour during Passover. On the other hand, matzo meal is coarser. Many people use this year round, especially now for making latkes. Both taste like ground matzo

Thank you Monita! I'm thinking about making this hazelnut thumbprint cookies (smittenkitchen.com) and it called for matzo cake meal. I look forward to cooking with a new flour!

Looks delicious. She gives an equivalent with regular flour and I would recommend going that route instead of buying matzo cake meal (1 cup + 1tbl reg flour). During Passover some people won't regular flour but there's no reason to sub now

When baking, can you tell the difference (taste difference) between matzo flour and regular AP flour?

There will be a difference but the recipe will be really good either way. Only if you had them side by side would you discern the difference.It's like using margarine in place of butter. The outcome isn't the same but they can stand on their own. I'm just suggesting you use AP flour so you don't have to buy a new ingredient that you probably won't use for anything else

Personally I would use regular flour. Matzoh [cake] meal is used during Passover, as Monita says, because regular flour is not permitted. To me, matzo meal tastes "flat." You'll probably get a better texture with regular flour as well.
