    2 cups flour

    2 cups sugar

    1 tsp baking soda

    ¼ tsp salt

    1 cup butter

    ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa

    1 cup water

    2 eggs

    ½ cup buttermilk

    1½ tsp vanilla

    Preheat oven to 350°. Grease well a 15 x 10 x 1 inch or a 13 x 9 x2 inch baking pan; set aside. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt; set aside.

    In a medium saucepan combine butter, cocoa powder, and water. Bring mixture just to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add the chocolate mixture to the flour mixture (recommend a stand mixer) beat on medium speed until combined. Add the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Beat for one minute (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pan.

    Bake for 25 minutes for the 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan, 35 minutes for the 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    Pour warm Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting over the warm brownies, spreading evenly. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

    Makes 24.
