Another one fro Jeannie

Texas Sheet Cake
This cake is moist, chocolatey and altogether delicious. It's quick to put together. You don't even have to get out your electric mixer; you can mix up this cake by hand in a jiffy.
For the Cake: XXQ
· 2 C Sugar
· 2 C All-purpose flour
· ¼ C Cocoa
· 1 t Baking soda
· 1 t Cinnamon
· ½ C Butter (1 stick), melted
· ½ C Buttermilk
· ½ C Canola or other vegetable oil
· 1 C Water
· 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
· 1 t Vanilla extract
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease and flour a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
Sift together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda and cinnamon, and set aside.
Stir together the remaining ingredients.
Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, stirring until you have a smooth, rather thin batter.
Pour into your prepared pan, and bake at 400°F for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

While the cake is baking, prepare the frosting.

For the Frosting:
· ¼ C Plus 2 tablespoons Milk (whole, 2%, skim - doesn't matter)
· ¼ C Cocoa
· ½ C Butter
· 1 pound Confectioner's sugar, sifted (about 4 cups)
· 1 t Vanilla extract
· 1 C Chopped pecans
Mix the milk and cocoa in a heavy saucepan (stir, stir, stir). Add the butter and, over medium heat, stir until the butter melts.
Remove from heat and gradually stir in the sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add the pecans.
When the cake is just out of the oven, spread the frosting evenly on the hot cake.

Texas Cake

Texas Cake

Just enough cake to hold the frosting together! Moist and VERY good. Serves 24 people

Ingredients:

1/2 cup oleo softened
4 tbls cocoa
1 cup water
Place the above in a small pan
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
sift the above dry ingredients together in a medium size bowl.
1 tsp. vinegar with milk added to make 1/2 cup
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Beat the last 3 ingredients together. Beat well.

Bring the oleo, cocoa and water to a boil and immediately pour over the dry ingredients and mix. Add the rest and mix until smooth. Pour in a greased jelly roll pan and bake 350 for 25-30 min.

Frost with the following:

2 cups sugar
1/4 cup white corn syrup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oleo
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
dash salt

Stir over low heat till chocolate is melted. Bring to a full boil, stirring constantly to 220 degrees on candy thermometer. Take from heat and beat on slow speed on mixer untill luke warm. ADD 1 tsp. vanilla. continue mixing until frosting looses its shine and is of spreading consistancy. Don't stop mixing too soon or the frosting will run off cake. Very good and well worth the work.
