Buttermilk (sour milk) brownies

Best use of sour milk EVER. This makes a cake-like brownie. In fact, I have put whipped cream frosting on it and served it as chocolate cake for my children's birthdays.

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

  • 1 cup water

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup oil (coconut oil or another neutral oil is best)

Dry/Dough ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 2 cups flour

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 1 T. vanilla

  • 1 cup sour milk

  • 2 eggs

Preheat oven to 400° F

  1. Mix wet ingredients in a small saucepan on the stove & bring to a boil. (Watch it carefully!) Remove from heat when fully mixed and no clumps of cocoa powder remain.

  2. Mix together the dough ingredients (I use a mixer for this)

  3. Pour the (hot!) wet ingredients over the dough. Beat until thoroughly combined.

  4. Pour the resulting batter (very thin consistency) into a 13x9 pan.

  5. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick insterted in the center comes out clean.

  6. Allow to cool before cutting.
