Texas Sheet Cake

When I moved my blog to this new address I kept a lot of my favorite projects and recipes.  Today I realized I forgot this one and it is my FAVORITE dessert.  I know the picture isn't super awesome (maybe one day I'll get the hang of photography) but don't let it fool you this one is a keeper.


I LOVE Texas Sheet Cake. This is one of my favorite desserts my mom makes. When I left for college I did not know how to cook/bake anything (I've come a long way in seven years). This is one of the recipes I borrowed and even I was able to make it. There you have it-easy and delicious.
Texas Sheet Cake
*Heat to boil:
4 Tbsp. cocoa
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup oil
1 cup of water
*Remove from heat and pour over:
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1tbs baking soda
1tsp. vanilla
*beat for 2 minutes. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
*Heat to boil:
4 tbsp cocoa
6 tbsp milk
1 stick of butter
*pour over:
1 box of powered sugar (I use about 1/2 a bag)
1 tsp. vanilla.
*Beat (add more sugar if needed) and spread over hot cake. ---I like to make my frosting as soon as I pull the cake out of the oven. As soon as the frosting is ready the cake is cool enough for it to be added. If the cake is too hot the frosting will just soak through (that is how my sister likes it).
