Isn’t this the brownies recipe that you always wanted for Pesach?
You’ve been looking for this brownies recipe. The one where there are no eggs to separate. The one where there’s no mixer needed. The one where there’s no chocolate to melt or chop. Just dump and mix. And we knew just what you needed. We used a shallow 9×13 as discussed here.
- 4 large eggs
- 1 ¾ cup sugar
- ½ cup cocoa
- ¾ cup potato starch
- 1 cup oil
- ½ cup ground nuts, optional
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Add all ingredients to a 9x13 inch shallow baking pan. Mix with a fork.
- Bake for about 50 minutes (all ovens may be different - check at the 45 minute mark - the brownies can take up to an hour).
Note: This recipe has been going around for years and we couldn’t find a source for it.
The original recipe is in the pasech nitra cookbook
i want to see what it looks like as a finished product??

Hi and thanks! Tried this and added one tsp baking soda and one teaspoon baking powder to the mixture and it came out heavenly! My family kept asking me, you sure this is not chometzdig?
We loved this pasach was huge hit!!
Wondering how to adapt it to chumitz. How much flour to potato starch?
I found that this amount of sugar was excessive, cutting down to 1 1/3 was perfect for us.
this was a lifesaver. Was so behind in my cooking. didnt think i’d get to cakes. Lined up 3 pans and voila!
I believe this is originally from the Nitra book. I’ve been making this recipe (passed down from my mom) for almost 20 years. Hers is the same thing doubled (8 eggs) which yields a higher cake but calls for a mixer. Was thrilled that I can skip the mixer and do it straight in the pan. Making it again for 2nd days since it was gone before first days were over…
These are incredible!! Thank you for something that didn’t require any cleanup and headed amazing!

Can you freeze this and serve it later? It sounds great!
Leah Schapira says
Yes! All cakes and cookies can be frozen ahead of time.
Are these moist?
can I use extra large eggs?
