"The lunch ladies at Continental High School homemade these great brownies for us in the 80s and 90s. They are super moist."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
unsweetened cocoa powder
hot strongly brewed coffee
unsweetened cocoa powder
3 1/2 cups
Moist, cake like brownies. There isn't much flavor, so if there is a next time, I'd have to make extra strong coffee (maybe 3 T instant to a cup of water!). The frosting is smooth and rich. I was surprised when frosting was put it on the hot bars, that the bars didn't absorb it!
As this recipe's first reviewer I was hoping to offer better than this average, 3-star review. Yes, they're good. Moist, lightly chocolate and more cake-like, just as the submitter describes. Still, I have a few criticisms that wouldn't allow me to rate them higher. First, there are holes in the cake, which in my view is not pretty, whether it affects taste or not. My fault, possibly, but I generally don't have that problem. Second, the preparation requires a little more monkeying around with than it needs to and could easily be simplified. Finally, there is just nothing uniquely special or stand-out about them to distinguish them from other, similar, recipes. Good, but not memorable.
This recipe is very much like my Texas Sheet Cake recipe. It is very moist delicious more cake like than the chewy brownies that I have traditionally made. It is very good for a change. I would list it as a cake recipe not a brownie recipe.
This really is chocolate cake--if you want a chewy brownie, this is not it.
The brownie part is just so-so. The frosting was over the top sweet. Disgustingly so on top of these brownies. 1) there was WAY too much frosting. A very, very thin layer would have been sufficient. 2) our lunch ladies never made anything like this -- ours were scrumptuous. They Were Gross. I'll never waste my ingredients on these again.
Just made these and another brownie recipe. This particular recipe is similar to a recipe I used to make as a kid, with the buttermilk recipe and the powdered sugar icing. I enjoyed the brownies and were very easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly and my family thoroughly enjoyed them as well. I can see I'll definitely be making these again :))
Best brownies ever! The icing I made didn't set like icing. It was more liquidy. I put a small hole all the way through the middle after it came out of the oven. I poured the icing over the brownies and it set in all through the brownies and made them so moist and gooey. So good!

These chocolate brownies from scratch are easy, moist, and delicious.
This chewy "blondie" is still plenty chocolatey, thanks to the chips on top.
Decadent, rich, chocolaty dessert that's a combination of brownies and cheesecake
