--Brownie Sheet Cake--

We had this growing up a lot at my house in the summer.  Especially at picnics because you make it in a jelly roll pan and there is a lot to go around.  I LOVE it because it's rich and yummy but not as fudgey as most brownies are -- don't get me wrong I am a huge ooey-gooey brownie fan but when your craving something sweet and cakey this hits the spot!!  And SHHHH they were really yummy for breakfast this morning;)

Brownie Sheet Cake:

In sauce pan combine --
1 c. water
1 c. butter
3 TBL. cocoa
Bring to boil and take off heat to cool slightly.

In a bowl add:
2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
1 tsp. soda
Mix together and add --
2 eggs
1/2 c. buttermilk -- whisked together

Combine together with cocoa mixture and mix till smooth.  Will be rather runny.  Pour into a jelly roll pan and bake at 400* for 20 minutes.


In sauce pan combine --
1/2 c. butter
2 TBL Cocoa
Bring to boil and take off heat.

Add to 1 lb. powdered sugar
Mix in 1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. milk - add gradually till frosting is smooth (add more milk or more powdered sugar if too thin or too thick)

**Frost brownies while still hot so frosting seeps into the cake;)**  ENJOY!!
