Texas Sheet Cake Brownies

1 cup of butter
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa
6 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a jellyroll style baking sheet and set aside.

In a small saucepan over medium heat add the butter, cocoa, and water and cook until it just comes to a boil. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl {I use my kitchen aid), combine the sugar, flour, baking soda, and salt. Pour cocoa mixture over the flour mixture and mix thoroughly. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and spread it evenly out. Bake for about 18 - 20 minutes or until the cake bounces bake when lightly touched. Remove cake from oven.

While the cake is baking, prepare the frosting. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, cocoa, and milk. Bring the mixture to a boil and then remove from heat. Whisk in the vanilla extract and powdered sugar until smooth. When the cake comes out of the oven, immediately pour the frosting over the top and spread it out evenly. Add any desired sprinkles. Let cool and then refrigerate for 1 hour. (I just let mine cool at room temp.)

This is my go to recipe when I need a quick delicious home made dessert. These are so moist and soft. Bet you can't eat just one!!!
