Texas Sheet Cake

Texas Sheet Cake

2 cups flour
2 cups white sugar
2 cubes margarine or butter
1 cup water
4 tbsp cocoa powder
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour milk (1 tsp white vinegar and then the rest regular milk)
Mix flour and sugar in a large mixing bowl. In a sauce pan bring margarine, water and cocoa to a boil. Pour boiling mixture into flour mixture and mix thoroughly. Add eggs, milk soda and vanilla and mix until very smooth. Batter will be runny. Cook in a large baking sheet (I call it a cookie sheet.) Grease and flour the pan, but don’t use flour use cocoa powder. It works great on chocolate cake or brownies. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes. My oven only needs 28-30 minutes so watch it close. (It really depends on the pan you use.) A toothpick will come out clean when it is ready. Let cool and frost with following frosting recipe…

Fudgey Chocolate Frosting

1 cube butter
4 tbsp cocoa powder
5 tbsp milk
3 cups powdered sugar
Bring first three ingredients to a boil. Put powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. Pour boiling mixture into the mixing bowl with the powdered sugar. Mix thoroughly until smooth. Put on cake while still warm so it will spread easily.

That’s it you’re done. Enjoy! (taken from
