Passover Brownies

Several years back, before we had kids, my mother-in-law shared her recipe for Passover Brownies. It's a very simple recipe that will be in the oven baking within minutes. It is made using matzah cake meal, and they are dense and very moist.

It's always a hit and the kids will eat them like they are going out of style. Both of My Boys LOVED them and I'm sure they'll be asking for more tomorrow whenever food is mentioned.

We've had a full day with play dates and what-not, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet so I can kick back and relax.

For Passover brownies this year, Ii tried Nigella's flourless brownies, which are made with almond meal. They were so fabulous - but I like that yours use much less fat (this recipe had 2 sticks of butter for an 8x8 pan! ouch!)
