Can't Believe They're Kosher for Passover Brownies
It's Passover time again, so I thought I would write about the dessert that I made for the first seder this year. My mom got this recipe for Passover brownies from a cooking class she took at our synagogue on Pittsburgh. The goal of Passover desserts is always to make something that doesn't taste like it's for Passover, which is hard, considering you can't use any flour! These brownies are actually really good and went over well at the seder. They are not the healthiest but hey, when you can't use flour, you end up using a lot of eggs and butter to get structure.
Passover Fudge Brownies
2 C sugar
1 C melted butter, slightly cooled
½ tsp salt
6 tbsp matzah cake meal
1 C cocoa
1 cup ground nuts (optional)
KP non-stick spray
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Sift matzah cake meal and cocoa. Set aside.
3. Beat eggs on medium high speed. Add sugar gradually and beat well.
4. Beat in melted butter and salt.
5. Add dry ingredients slowly, beating until fully combined. Stir in nuts.
6. Pour into a greased 9” x 13” metal pan.
7. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 min until a toothpick comes out clean.
