Have your cake on Passover, and eat it too

With the Passover holiday coming up, there are several recipes anyone can use for desserts, whether it is after the Seder meal or during the Passover holiday. There are several cakes and cookies that can be made with the use of matzo meal instead of regular flour.

Several of these ingredients can be found at stores like Safeway, Walmart or Albertson’s. They can also be found at other grocery stores in different sizes.

Passover Brownies


4 eggs – 99 cents for a pack of six eggs
2 cups white sugar – $2.99 for a package of sugar
