Julie’s Brownies for Passover

It’s so good to have friends that share their recipes. Whether it be for holidays or just to share. My friend Julie shared this with me and though I haven’t baked them yet I am pretty certain they will be a winner. Always on the lookout for Passover desserts, I’m excited to give this one a try. It’s also amazing that there are only 2 eggs in this recipe because it seems like every recipe has a whopping 6 eggs in it for this holiday. Just an aside here, my friend Julie has a baking company in Aspen, CO. named Aspen Jewels Bakery. If you live up here and don’t feel like baking you can contact her and she’ll bake for you!


1 stick butter, unsalted ( or margarine)

2 ounces unsweetened chocolate

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3 tablespoons matzoh cake meal

1 tablespoon potato starch

1/4 teaspoon salt

* 1 cup walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 35o degrees. Grease a 9 inch square baking pan. Melt butter and chocolate over double-boiler. (If no double boiler, place an oven proof bowl above pot of boiling water.)  After chocolate melts, set aside to cool. Stir in sugar, eggs, vanilla and beat well. Stir in matzo cake meal and potato starch,  and salt.  Bake for 40 minutes.
