TEXAS SHEET CAKE FROM CLABBER GIRL

Texas Sheet Cake

This recipe is another one of my favorites I have learned from my grandma! I know I have said it before with some other recipes, that I am wanting to learn some family recipes that everyone loves and that are favorites of mine. Texas Sheet Cakes are like a family tradition, you might have eaten it as a kid as well as your parents may have as well. Enjoyable every time!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 sticks margarine (melted)
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 4 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 2 c. chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
  • Texas Sheet Cake Frosting
    • 1 stick margarine (melted)
    • 4 Tbsp. cocoa
    • 6 Tbsp. buttermilk
    • 4 c. powdered sugar
    • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    • 1 c. chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

Instructions

In a mixing bowl combine sugar, eggs, salt, baking soda, vanilla and margarine together and mix. Then add the flour, cocoa, buttermilk, and nuts if choosing to. Mix with hand mixer until smooth. 
Pour batter into a greased, large jelly roll pan (17"x 12" x 2" or so). 
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25 to 30 minutes.
As soon as the cake is done, make the icing. In a sauce pan combine margarine, cocoa, and buttermilk together as margarine melts. Then add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Add nuts if choosing to. Pour immediately over the warm cake and spread over top and edges of the cake. 
Make it with nuts, any kind of nuts you'd like, or without depending on your liking.
