This Texas Sheet Cake is one of my very favorite cakes. I cannot live without chocolate and this one is perfect for any chocoholic. This cake never lasts long at my house.2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup buttermilk 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 sticks butter or margarine or 1 cup or 16 tablespoons 1/3 cup 100% cocoa 1 cup water In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Mix well with a wire whisk. Set aside. In a smaller bowl combine eggs, vanilla extract, buttermilk and baking soda. Mix well with wire whisk. Set aside. In a pan on top of the stove melt butter, add cocoa and water. Bring to a boil. Remove from stove and pour into flour and mix until all flour is wet with a spoon. Add egg and milk mixture and continue mixing just until all ingredients are wet. Pour into a sprayed (I line my pan with Reynolds wrap and don’t spray. You can do either) 15 x 10 inch jelly roll pan.(Could use a 9 x 13 pan, too). Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes testing for doneness at 20 minutes. If you use a 9 x 13 it may take a little longer to cook. Frost with recipe below. Makes one sheet cake.
