I've made these frosted brownies for so many years, I don't need a recipe card to follow. When our three grandchildren visit the farm, they're delighted when I serve these-plain or with ice cream.

I am a volunteer TOH field editor and have made these many times!! Definitely more of a cake type of brownie than a dense brownie. But is still very moist and very tasty!!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2012

Good recipe...with the following caveats. Works fine in a 13x9 pan, and definitely is a CAKE. Used regular milk in the frosting, and that worked fine. Just don't make these expecting brownies. Expect a yummy chocolate cake.
