Joanie's Pesach Brownies

Recipe by  

"My family always complained that baked goods that were kosher for Passover tasted terrible, so I took my regular brownie recipe and created a flour and leavening-free version that tastes just as good as the non-Passover version!"

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch square pan.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the unsweetened chocolate. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes. Reduce the speed to low, and pour in the chocolate and butter, then stir in the vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir together the matzo meal, potato starch and salt. Use a spoon to stir into the chocolate mixture until well blended. Mix in the walnuts or chocolate chips if using. Pour into the prepared pan and spread evenly.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the brownies are dry on top and begin to pull away from the sides.

This was the best Passover dessert ever. The only difficulty was getting it out of the pan. Wonderful!!!!!

These were wonderful. My family were surprised how "normal" they tasted! People kept sneaking more after the table was cleared.

For a passover brownie recipe, this was really exceptional. People were remarking how incredibly moist these were, and adding the chocolate chips in was a real surprise plus to them. Definitely on the menu for next year's seder!

This are really good. My Jewish relatives loved them and were shocked that they were kosher for passover. I think I added a little too much salt, and I could taste it, but no one else seemed to notice. I'll just be extra careful when measuring the next time!
