Pesach Brownies (Non-Gebrokts even!)

My husband grew up eating Pesach brownies from a package, the kind I call chemical brownies, and he always says they are the best.

I told him I could make Pesach brownies that taste WAY better than chemical brownies...

So here is my secret (not anymore) recipe:

(This makes 3 square brownie pans. All of my Pesach recipes are "for a crowd" - my apologies to those who don't cook in large quantity. Feel free to adjust as needed.)

5-6 eggs, beaten
1 c. oil
2.5 c. sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Mix well.
Add:
2 c. cocoa powder
2 c. potato starch
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
chocolate chips (I used half a bag because I'm stingy with my chocolate chips)
nuts if you like (I make them without nuts because certain members of my family think nuts ruin brownies. sigh.)
Mix well, with a wooden spoon.
Pour into baking pans and bake at 325 F (165 C) for 20-25 min
Enjoy!

  1. I just used your recipe; I dont know how you get 3 pans out of this, as I used smaller pans and just barely got 2 pans out of it...

    2. The ones in the picture are not brownie pans, I didn't have any of those handy...

  2. The ones I used were rectangular. About two of those make a 9x13...

    1. I think that's a bit bigger than a standard brownie pan...

    1. Glad you liked it! I made up this recipe about 6 yrs ago, and it became a keeper!
      Did you use nuts or not?

    2. left out the chocolate chips and the nuts. Keeps it cheaper that way.

    3. You're right. it is cheaper that way... definitely an option!

    4. Have to say- 2 cups of cocoa aren't too cheap either... but at least its cheaper than those nut based cakes...

    5. Tell me about it. I almost didn't post this recipe bec. of the cocoa content. I'm sure I have some die hard friends who will try reducing the amount of cocoa...

    6. I'm sure they were still great! I just love the super-intense dark chocolate flavor. and i'm willing to splurge for a chag. how much cocoa did you cut out?

  4. Saved!
    Hope these work out better than the not-so-frugal KLP blondies I just made!

  5. Does 'c.' mean 'cup'?
    2 cups of cocoa? Is that cacao powder?
    thanks!

    1. Yes, cup is often abbreviated c. and cocoa = cocoa powder. Probably what you are referring to as cacao powder... Sorry for the confusion! I'll change it to "cocoa powder" right now!

  6. Brownie pans are actually 11"x7" but it doesn't matter. The smaller the pan (say 8"x8" or 9"x9") will result in deeper (moister) brownies. The larger ones will have thinner brownies.
