Chocolaty, moist, rich, delicious brownies. This recipe comes from my mom and it is so good! Making homemade brownies is super easy, so drop the box of brownie mix and make these. Your sweet tooth will thank you.Print Recipe
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix together flour, sugar, and 4 cocoa powder in a large bowl. In a saucepan, bring water, oil, and butter to a boil. Pour over the dry ingredients and beat with a hand mixer until creamy. Mix in the buttermilk, baking soda, and eggs. Pour into a greased jelly roll pan or 9×13 baking dish.
Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 30 minutes.
While still warm, frost with the frosting recipe below.
Never-Fail Chocolate Fudge Frosting
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Bring the first 3 ingredients to a full boil, boil for 1 minute (this is a very important step, if you skimp on the boil time you will end up with a gritty frosting). Remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted. Enough for a 9×13″ pan.
My reason for making these brownies? Aside from them being delicious, I’m missing some birthday celebrations back in SD & thought these cake-like brownies would be a nice way to celebrate out here in VA 🙂 Happy Birthday to my sister Shannon & my niece Ruby whose Birthdays were last week and yesterday, respectively. Hope you are eating lots of cake!
