I have never made homemade brownies before and I have been looking for stuff to make with my buttermilk I bought before it spoils. I have made a few things and this is one of them. First off, I have to say when it was baking, it did not smell very yummy, I was a little leary. I have made another recipe in the past that was very similar (#13554) so when I made the frosting I poured it on top while brownie was still hot. I have to say, these are very light, more cake-like than a typical dense brownie I am used to, althought I did not use a jelly roll pan, because I don't have one, I used a 9x9 stone baker instead, as that is what I usually use for brownies. I doubles the cooking time and checked with a toothpick for done-ness. All in all it is good, the kids loved them. But they are not very sweet w/o the frosting. Great for your choco-fix! :-)
