Texas Sheet Cake

I found this over at a couple of years ago.  We love Texas sheet cake!  It's a popular cake and you may already have a recipe for it.


Cake Batter -

1 cup butter
1 cup water
4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp baking soda

Frosting -

1/2 cup butter
4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
5 tbsp milk
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts (I did not add these.)


1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).  Grease a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan.

2.  Bring 1 cup butter, water and 4 tbsp cocoa to a boil in a large saucepan. Remove from heat. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 2 cups white sugar, and salt.  Add hot chocolate mixture.  Mix well.  Beat in eggs, sour cream, and baking soda.  Do not beat too long.

3.  Pour batter into greased 15x10 in ch jelly roll pan.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean.

4.  To make icing, bring 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 4 tbsp cocoa and 5 tbsp milk to a boil.  Remove from heat.  While still hot, add confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and nuts (if desired).  Beat well.  Ice cake while icing is still hot.
