Perfect Passover Brownies

I love Passover brownies, even more than regular brownies. Not sure whether that's because of the taste or because they come with a cookbook full of memories.
I've tried many recipes over the years and this one is by far the best....simple, yet delicious. It's good with meat or dairy meals.

I top my brownie with a spoonful of homemade whipped cream (I use very little sugar in the cream since the brownies are sweet).


  • 5 large eggs

  • 2 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1 1/4 cups oil

  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa

  • 1 1/4 cups Passover cake meal (not matzoh meal)

  • Optional ingredients: 1 cup chopped walnuts or 1/4 cup chocolate chips (try white chips)

  • Beat eggs and sugar until pale and lemony (use mixer if possible)

  • Beat in oil, cocoa, and cake meal. Blend well.

  • Stir in walnuts or chocolate chips, if desired

  • Pour into one 8 X 12 or 9 X 13 pan (or two 8 or 9 inch square pans)

  • Bake about 40 minutes. Be careful not to overbake them

  • Cool on rack
