The BEST Buttermilk Brownies

I believe that many people also call this Texas Sheet Cake or a variety of other names, but a key ingredient is BUTTERMILK, so I’m sticking with this Baker family favorite.  Brice loves these, and since he’s coming in town to rope this weekend, I thought I’d brew up a little treat to send home with him.  MB also thought that a few of these would be an awesome idea.  He quickly volunteered to test them to make sure they were ok for Brice.  (he gave them thumbs up 🙂

This is the little plate of deliciousness that MB soon devoured:

I’ve included the recipe below, and maybe my favorite is scraping the batter bowl – yum!  I hope you enjoy as my family has for many, many years.  ~Connie Kaye
