  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.

I was very disappointed with this recipie. I have been looking for the original Texas Brownie recipie that I had & I was very happy to find this one. I made this recipe twice and neither time it turned out well. I know the last recipe I had called for instant coffee, but I used water instead, like this recipe. I found it very bland and lacking in 'chocolate' flavor. I do not recommend this recipe.

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!

Definitely a cake - not a brownie, tho i think the size & richness qualifies this to be called Texas Brownies! Speaking of size - this recipe made TWO jelly roll pans (so i doubled the frosting) - i was afraid of a big mess if i only used one pan. So wonderful & made enough to share with friends & freeze some for later!

I loved this recipe and so did my husband, especially with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream. I had to make a few changes because I can't find buttermilk in my town in Mexico; I used 1 cup of sour cream for the buttermilk, used 10 tbsp. of cocoa rather than 4-1/2 tbsp., used 1 cup of coffee for 1 cup of water, and added 1 large tsp. of cinnamon. I frosted with a can of frosting I had in the cupboard. They were great, very cakey and really delicious.

I have made this recipe several times. It is more of a cake than a brownie...but it is delicious and moist. I always use plain yogurt instead of the buttermilk.

Good overall, but I was dissappointed with the frosing. I have made your recipe before and it was great. .Just remember to gradually add your cocoa , icing sugar and vanilla. It makes a big differnce in the frosting.
