A great Passover brownie that is easy to make. I've made them with and without the nuts and there are never any left from either. I already have requests for this for next Passover. The brownies are fairly flat and thin in a 9x13-inch pan. They can be made in a smaller pan but the cooking time will need to be adjusted.
- 3 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 3⁄4 cup margarine or 3⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 4 1⁄2 tablespoons matzo meal
- 3⁄4 cup cocoa
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup nuts (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400F and grease a 9x13-inch pan.
- Beat eggs.
- Add sugar and beat.
- Add melted butter/margarine and beat.
- Mix in remaining ingredients, including nuts.
- Pour batter into pan and bake for 18 minutes.
These were fantastic! I cheated a bit and used 1/4c vegetable oil + 1/2c applesauce in place of the margarine. Used a 9 x 9 pan; after 18 minutes they didn't look quite ready, so left them in for a few minutes longer. The resulting color made me a little hesitant, but the flavor and texture were great! Will remake these all year long!
This was so easy to make and sooooooo delicious. It was much better than the usually dry Pesach cakes. I will be making this all year round.
Fantastic Passover/all year round recipe! I followed it exactly--used no nuts--but baked it in a 9x9 pan so thin wasn't an issue.Will make again and again. thank you !
