  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons matzo cake meal 85 grams
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus a pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup toasted chopped nuts plus a little more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8 inch square metal pan with nonstick foil.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, yolk and sugar with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Add the oil gradually, then add the cake meal and cocoa powder, stirring until smooth. Stir in the espresso powder, salt, nuts and chocolate chips.
  • Scrape mixture into the pan and sprinkle more nuts on top if desired.
  • Bake for about 30-32 minutes or until brownies appear set. Let them cool completely.
  • I like to chill them a bit before I lift them from the pan and cut with a knife.
