I experimented for years to come up with a brownie made with matzo ... this is the best!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Beat eggs and sugar. Add oil. Mix in cake meal and cocoa. Add nuts (or use the nuts as a topping).

    Advertisement
  • Bake in a greased 9 x 13 inch pan at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 35 minutes. The secret to moist brownies, Pesach or otherwise, is to underbake them. Check them at 30 minutes. I also put nuts on top rather than in the brownies for two reasons: They make the top look good without having to frost them and, for those who don 't or can't eat nuts, they are easily removed without having to search for them.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Wonderful recipe. Similar but better than Passover Brownies in Second Helpings Please. For easy removal I greased pan & lined it with parchment paper which I also greased. At 30 minutes toothpick doesn't come out clean but the top is set & brownies are perfectly moist. Note: Cake meal is ground finer then regular matzo meal. You can make matzo cake meal by using blender to grind matzo meal into a fine powder. Strain to sift out any lumps. Brownies freeze well. If freezing don't ice until defrosted. Optional Icing: In microwave melt in 20 second intervals 6 ozs. semi-sweet chocolate squares or chips 1 tbsps. margarine & 1/8 1/16 tsp. water. Read More

I thought these brownies were great! It's so hard to find a passover dessert recipe that tastes delicious as well. This did it. I'll be making these every year! Read More

The best Passover brownies I have ever made. If you don't have cake meal you can use regular matza meal - the consistency will be a bit less smooth but they will be great nonetheless - and won't last long. Read More

This weekend I'll use this recipe as a 'base' for brownies that I want to make...I'll substitute the veg oil for blue band light olive oil baking product and put in pecans instead of walnuts end crush some eastern egs (chocolate) that I still have and put them in... Oh and I'll use wholeweat flour and yeast since I don't know what matzoh is and i want the brownies nice and fluffy...This was the first recipe I found that didn't require butter but oil and that's what I wanted. (I also tried to look op vegan brownies but nothing there) I understand it's a Jewish recipe hope you don't mind I'll tinker with it:-) Read More
