These are great, rich and fudgy brownies. I cut them small and serve with fresh strawberries. Perfect at the end of a long seder. A zeisen Pesach to all chowhounds!
I posted this recipe yesterday on the home-cooking board, but I thought I would try to repost here, where the pareve cooks hang out:
P.J.s Passover Brownies (Adapted from St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 1988)
Preheat oven to 325. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan.
4 eggs, well beaten (egg beaters are ok, although given the rest of the ingredients, why bother?!)
2 cups granulated sugar
½ Cup cocoa powder
1 Cup canola oil
½ tsp. Salt
1 cup matzo cake meal (sifting optional)
1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1. Beat eggs with sugar, cocoa, oil and salt.
2. Gradually add the matzo cake meal.
3. Stir in pecans* and chocolate morsels, and pour into the baking pan.
4. Bake 30-40 minutes. You want a toothpick to come out a little sticky.
(*my kids dont like the nuts, so after I have poured the batter into the pan,I add the nuts to ½ the pan & gently stir a bit)
NOTE: recipe can be halved and baked in a 9 x 9 inch pan.
