Yummy Cake Brownies

2 c. flour

2 c. sugar
2 sticks margarine
3 T. cocoa
1 c. water
2 eggs
1/2 c. buttermilk (or use 1/2 c. milk combined with 1 t. vinegar)
1 t. soda
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
nuts

In bowl, mix together flour and sugar. In saucepan, melt margarine, cocoa and water-bring to boil 2 minutes. Pour over flour mixture. Beat eggs, buttermilk, soda, vanilla, and salt. This will be runny. Bake on a greased sheet. (I like to make this in a jelly roll style pan). Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Add nuts if desired.


Frosting:

1 stick margarine
2 T. cocoa
1/3 c. milk
1 lb. powdered sugar (4 c.)
1 t. vanilla

Melt margarine, cocoa, and milk. Bring to a boil. Pour over powdered sugar. Add vanilla. Mix well. Spread on top of brownies while hot.

*I also like to sprinkle chopped pecans on half of the sheet of brownies. We have those who like 'em, and those who don't. These are great for church functions or large crowds.
*We also like to eat these warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!
