Yummy! Frost with my Espresso Frosting Recipe which I am posting separate. Adapted from Betty Crocker's Ultimate Cookies & Brownies. Yield is if you use a jelly roll pan. If you dont have one, just make them in a cake pan, they'll be thicker, unless you use 2 cake pans.

These make a nice cakey brownie. I used plain yogurt for the buttermilk and half Splenda/half sugar. We must eat larger brownies there is no way I could get 50. I used a chocolate syrup glaze for the frosting.
