Just because the Passover rules dictate that Jewish people can’t eat any leavened foods (hence all the matzo), doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy dessert. Eggs are the magic answer here, giving these moist and cakey brownies just the lift they need, along with a delicious crackling top. Since these brownies contain no dairy, they can be served at a meat-based meal without mixing milk and meat. Also, they’re great any day for the lactose intolerant.
