Passover: Brownies


passover brownies

Ahem.  Take one look at these brownies and you tell me….do they look kosher for Passover to you?

How can you tell they don’t contain any flour or baking powder?

Well, you can’t tell…

Absolutely NOTHING in these brownies is sacrificed.  Not looks.  Not even taste.

That’s right, another simple, easy, Passover dessert that plays nice with your taste buds.

Don’t be afraid.  Even though the recipe calls for a whopping 5 eggs, and a hefty 2 1/2 cups of sugar, these brownies don’t taste like imposters.

They’re still rich enough (thanks to the cocoa and sugar) and moist enough (thanks to the Cake Meal) to make it a struggle not to eat the whole batch.
