Tasty Tuesdays – Texas Sheet Cake

When I first had this I fell in love… I am not normally a chocolate person (crazy, I know) but this cake is sooo yummy. Then I got the recipe from my husband’s Aunt and I fel in love again… my favorite thing about this recipe is that you do NOT wait for the cake to cool before icing it! Great for a busy mommy!

Cake:
2 sticks margarine
1 c. water
4 T. cocoa
2 c. sugar
2 c. flour
½ t. salt
2 eggs
¾ c. sour cream
1 t. baking soda
Icing:
1 stick butter
4 T. cocoa
4 T. milk
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla

Cake:
Bring to boil the margarine, water and cocoa. Remove from heat and add sugar, flour and salt. Beat in eggs, sour cream and baking soda. Mix thoroughly. Pour into greased and floured 10”x15” jelly roll pan. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until sides of cake pull away from pan.

Icing:
While cake is baking, put all ingredients into heavy saucepan. Over medium-low heat, allow butter to melt and when possible stir together with wisk. Do not boil. Keep warm over low heat until cake is baked. Pour icing over cake immediately after removing from the oven.
