  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12x18 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar and baking soda. In a small saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cup margarine, 4 1/2 tablespoons cocoa, and 1 1/2 cup water to a rapid boil. Pour over the flour mixture and stir until combined. Add the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract; mix well.
  3. Spread batter evenly into the prepared baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Cool before frosting.
  4. Frosting: In a small saucepan, melt 1/2 cup of margarine. Stir in the confectioners' sugar, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla, in that order. Beat by hand until creamy, then spread onto cooled sheet of brownies. Cut into squares and enjoy.

I debated between 3 and 4 stars, and went for the higher rating because the product is good. However, this is NOT a brownie. This is a very dense cake. I doubled the chocolate at other's suggestion and felt the chocolate-ness of it was perfect. I also substituted one cup of brown sugar for one of the cups of white sugar. As the other Texas Brownie (cake) suggests cinnamon, I a tsp of cinnamon to this recipe. I also used the frosting recipe from Texas Brownies I. I am very happy with the finished product but again must stress that this is not a Brownie - it is a moist dense chocolate cake.



These are awesome! They are more like a cake than a brownie. Delicious!



I made these and brought them to work for a co-worker who is from Texes, it was her birthday. Everyone raved about them! I feel bad....the brownies took the spotlight over her birthday!
