Texas Sheet Cake

I love this cake. The cake is moist and the frosting is delicious.

Texas Sheet Cake

2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
½ cup shortening
1 stick butter
1 cup water
4 Tbs cocoa
½ cup buttermilk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Sift together sugar and flour in large bowl.  In a saucepan, bring to boil the shortening, butter, water and cocoa.  Pour over the flour mixture while still hot.  Add the buttermilk, beaten eggs, baking soda and vanilla.  Pour into a large cookie sheet with sides.  Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.

1 stick butter
4 Tbs cocoa
6 Tbs milk
1 Box powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup walnuts

Bring to a boil the butter, cocoa and milk.  Add the powdered sugar, vanilla and nuts.  Cook until syrupy.  Spread over the cake while both are still hot.
