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.)
4-5 eggs, beaten
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1.5 - 2 cups cocoa powder
2 cups 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
Note: this recipe needs some adjusting if you are doing higher altitude baking. I developed it when I lived more or less at sea level. Now that we're a bit higher up, I bake it for less time.
