Recipe time

OK - Julia Child i'm not. Alton Brown i am most definately not. But i do like to cook.

And after finding a killer chicken curry recipe on Cathy's blog, i thought it only fair i share my most favorite, absolutely killer recipe for:

Mexican Brownies.

(stop. they have cinnamon in 'em. not anything else)


DISCLAIMER: These Are Not For The Dieter. These Are Full-Blooded, Calorie-Laden Bits Of Goodness From The Chocolate Godesses.

Mexican Brownies

1 stick margarine
5 tbs cocoa
1/2 cup Crisco
1 cup water

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar

1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

1 stick margarine
5 tbs milk
4 tbs cocoa
1 entire box of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

In a large saucepan, combine margarine, cocoa, Crisco & 1 cup water - bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl combine flour & sugar. Stir well, then slowly pour hot mixture over flour/sugar combo & mix well. Add buttermilk, cinnamon, baking soda, eggs, vanilla & salt. Mix well, pour into a 9x13 (or bigger) pan. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes.

Let cool for 20 minutes. While cooling, combine first 3 ingredients of frosting, after margarine has melted, add vanilla & powdered sugar - mix well till smooth (i use my hand mixer, it really works well & i get to lick the beaters!), then pour over brownies.

Let cool completely, get out the cold milk & enjoy.

As for the music. It took me weeks to figure it out. haha!

Start by clicking the link under the video on my blog, then back to your dashboard to the templates section there, it gives step by step directions to add links. Good Luck!

Oh and the brownie recipe looks yummy!

Sorry I haven't been around! Been busy, tired, etc. Am playing catch up right now. Thanks so much for your notes! Do you still need help with links?

Your recipe for Mexican Brownies looks much different (and better) than the one I tried a few years back (and didn't like). Think I'm going to try making yours!
