    I made these incredible brownies as my brother's birthday cake (11/2005)--friends still remember the taste and ask for the recipe! Taken from BH&G "New Cook Book", 1989.

      Super Yum! I could not stop eating these brownies once they were made. Rich and cakelike, the chocolate of the brownie and the chocolate of the icing were the perfect combination. I did not add pecans, as my 17 year old does not like them, but that could have only added to the delish factor. Don't be surprised by the thinner cake-like batter. Very simple to make. This will be a well-used recipe at my house.

      Moist and cakelike. They remind me a Texas Sheet Cake. The flavor is INCREDIBLE. A new family favorite. Thanks!
