In the Kitchen for Christmas with Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy

Iced Buttermilk Brownies


My mom found this many years ago and our family has been making it ever since!



What You Need (Brownies)

             Two sticks butter

             4 tablespoons cocoa

             1 cup water

             2 cups flour

             2 cups sugar

             1 teaspoon baking soda

             1 teaspoon salt

             2 eggs

             ½ cup buttermilk

             1 teaspoon vanilla

Buttermilk Fudge Icing:

What You Need:

             One stick butter, melted

             4 tablespoons cocoa

             1 teaspoon vanilla

             ½ cup buttermilk

             Two cups powdered sugar (or a one pound box) sifted


What You Do:

             Melt butter on the stovetop in a heavy saucepan and add cocoa and water. 

             Bring to a boil and pour over dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl (flour, sugar, baking soda and salt)

             Add eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla then stir until blended

             Pour brownie batter into large sheet cake pan

             Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for twenty minutes or until an inserted knife blade comes out clean

             Frost while warm with the buttermilk fudge icing -blend all ingredients into the melted butter.  Icing will be thin enough to pour.  Pour over still warm brownies and let cool to a glossy finish.

Serving suggestion:

Serve warm with vanilla or chocolate ice cream
