Matzo Brownie Cake


30 people made this

This is a delicious chocolate brownie cake made with matzo meal instead of flour. We serve it at Passover.


Serves: 18 

  • 5 eggs
  • 500g caster sugar
  • 300ml vegetable oil
  • 100g matzo meal
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 150g chopped walnuts

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and the sugar together. Add the oil. Mix in the matzo meal and the cocoa.
  2. Add nuts or, if preferred, reserve nuts for topping. Pour batter into a greased 23 x 33cm baking tin. Bake at 160 degrees C for about 30 minutes and check. The secret to a moist brownie cake is to underbake it! Return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes if necessary.

Something else. Perfect - a really straightforward recipe that produces a delicious cake. I have made it twice now and added 2 T of a chunky homemade marmalade for even more flavour (I also reduce the sugar slightly to due to the extra sweetness of the jam). I like to slice it in half and spread it with whipped cream that has had 100g of melted dark chocolate whipped into it. I then ice it with a dark drizzly chocolate icing. You could also spoon a little Grand Marnier onto the bottom layer before you put the cream on. This was my solution to a request for a Chocolate/Orange birthday cake! - 18 Jul 2008


This was a fantastic recipe and made a really big cake - we had 18 at our Seder and it easily went around. I topped it with a really rich chocolate ganache and broken walnuts and it was just sensational. This will be a family favourite into the future, for sure. - 18 Jul 2008


The brownies came out great! Everyone loved them. They were thick and chewy. - 18 Jul 2008
