Texas Sheet Cake ♥ ♥ ♥

TEXAS SHEET CAKE

This is one of the best sheet cakes I have ever had. Now that I think of it, maybe the only one. It is super moist and very addictive, so consider yourself warned!




Sheet Cake

Sift together 2 cups flour and 2 cups sugar in large bowl and set aside.

Boil together;

1 stick butter
1/2 cup Crisco
1 cup water

After coming to a boil pour over dry ingredients (sugar and flour) mix well and set aside to cool slightly.
Mix together;

4 TBS cocoa
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon

Add to mixture that was set aside to cool and mix well. Pour into a greased 11x16 pan and bake for 20 minutes at 425. I used a slightly larger pan to bake my cake in, I think it was a 13x18.



ICING

1 stick butter
4 TBS cocoa
6 TBS milk

Melt all ingredients together in a pan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add 4 cups of powdered sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla to mixture. Add 1 cup of pecans if desired. Beat well and pour over warm cake as soon as it comes out of the oven.






Enjoy!

My mom use to make this all the time when I was a kid. We only got to have it when company was coming over or a funeral. I just remember it being such a treat.
