Texas Brownie Recipe

Filed in Dessert

In my previous post I was talking about coffee, which reminded me of this recipe.  So, I had to share it with you.

Texas Brownie


2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup strong brewed coffee (or water)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 dash salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 egg, beaten
4 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 cup butter
6 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 400°; grease an 11″ x 17″ jelly roll pan.
2. Mix sugar and flour in a bowl; in a saucepan bring to boil the butter, shortening, water, cocoa and salt; pour cocoa mixture over flour mixture and stir until combined.
3. Beat in buttermilk, baking soda, eggs and vanilla; pour into baking pan and bake for 15 minutes, until center is barely set; DO NOT OVERBAKE; the center of the brownie will be slightly puffed but, if not overbaked, will fall when cool.
4. Prepare the frosting while the brownie bakes; in same saucepan, bring to boil the butter, milk and cocoa; remove from heat and stir in confectioners’ sugar and vanilla; stir until smooth.
5. Pour and spread over the brownie immediately after removing it from the oven.  (The frosting hardens very quickly, so you have to do this step pretty fast)

They are soooooo yummy!

(I haven’t made them recently, so I did a Google search to find that picture- so it’s not mine.)
