My friend Michelle has had the recipe for several years, and it calls for water to mix with the butter on the stove top, but my fabulous culinary friend, Juliet decided to use heavy whipping cream instead of water to give it an extra boost of yumminess!  (If you want the light version, go for the water, but it might not be as tasty). It also has almond extract in the cake and frosting, which I ADORE, but can be substituted for vanilla if there are allergies.

Never had I made a cake or brownie over stove top. Am I missing something that others already knew about? As I added ingredients, it thickened, and my heart started palpitating.

I could tell it was going to be fudgy, like I love. It baked a quick 20 minutes–super easy to make! It’s great for big groups, too, you just can’t go wrong!  Here is the recipe:

This fudgy vanilla brownie is also called White Texas Sheet Cake, but I didn't think "cake" did it justice. It's amazing!

Are you like me and generally steer clear of the plain? Give it a chance the next time you are feeding a crowd! If you can’t wait til then, make the neighbor plates ahead of time so you aren’t tempted to eat the whole thing!
