Directions

  1. Grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together flour, granulated sugar, baking soda, and the 1/2 teaspoon salt; set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, 1/2 cup butter, the oil, and 1/4 cup cocoa powder. Heat just to boiling, stirring to melt butter; add hot liquid to flour mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed just until dry ingredients are moistened. Add the 1/2 cup buttermilk, the eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat on low speed for 1 minute. (Don't overbeat.) (Batter will be thin.)
  2. For frosting, in a large bowl, combine powdered sugar and salt; set aside. In medium saucepan, combine 1/2 cup butter, the 1/3 cup buttermilk, and 1/4 cup cocoa powder; heat and stir over medium heat until butter is melted. Pour hot buttermilk mixture over powdered sugar mixture. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed just until combined; beat on medium speed until smooth. By hand, stir in nuts, if desired. Carefully pour the warm frosting over the warm brownies; spread evenly. Cool completely. Cut into bars. Makes about 48 brownies.
