TEXAS SHEET CAKE

There's nothing good for you about it, I'm afraid. It comes out rich, moist, chocolatey.... and might induce a diabetic coma. But they're SO FABULOUS!

Most people put PEEcons on theirs, but I'm allergic to them so I do not. I've been know to "eat around" them on occasion, but it's really not a good idea with a nut allergy....


Ingredients:

1 cup butter
1 cup water
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Frosting, below
chopped pecans

Frosting
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1 box (1 pound) confectioners' sugar, sifted (4 1/4 cups sifted)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Cake: Combine butter, water, and cocoa in saucepan over medium heat; heat until butter melts. Add sugar, flour, salt, eggs, soda, sour cream, and vanilla; mix well. Pour into a 15x10x1-inch jelly roll pan. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Spread frosting over hot cake and sprinkle with chopped pecans.

For frosting, combine butter, cocoa and milk in a saucepan; bring just to a boil. Add remaining ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer. Spread over the warm sheet cake and sprinkle with cjopped pecans if desired.
