Texas Sheet Cake

This recipe is from my roommate from college, Donna. Today is Donna and Eric's 23rd wedding anniversary! Happy Anniversary--I baked you a cake, come and get it! :-) This is an easy recipe and everyone likes it.

Texas Sheet Cake

2 sticks butter
1 c water
4 T cocoa

Bring this to a boil. Add this mixture to:

2 c sugar
2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt

Add this to:

2 eggs
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c buttermilk(or add 1 T vinegar or lemon juice to milk)

Mix well. This is a thin mixture. Pour into a greased jelly roll pan and bake for 20 minutes at 350.

Frosting: Make 5 minutes before cake is done

1 stick butter
4 T cocoa
6 T milk

Boil together and add 2 c powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Pour over cake while still hot. Work fast as this sets us quickly.
