Triple Chocolate Sheet Cake
Here's the chocolate "sheath" cake I grew up with:
2 c sugar, 2 c. flour, 1 tsp soda, 2 tsp cinnamon--Mix thoroughly.
In a saucepan, combine: 1 stick of margarine, 4 T cocoa, 1/2 c. oil, 1 c. water. Combine liguid with powdered mixture . Mix thoroughly. Add: 1/2 c. buttermilk, 2 eggs, beaten, 1 tsp. vanilla. Add to cake mixture. Mix thoroughly. Pour into greased 13x9x2 pan. Bake @ 400 for 20 minutes. ***5 minutes before cake is done, (In same saucepan) combine 1 stick butter, 4T cocoa, 6T milk. Add 1 box of powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 c. pecans. Mix and pour at once on hot cake. Delicious with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla!!
Great cake for church parties, group gatherings. Can mix, bake and ice in 45 minutes!!!!!
