I just received another request for this recipe from one of my penpals. I thought I'd share it here as well. But first, a quick warning:
This cake is completely bad for you. Although delicious, it has absolutely no redeeming health benefits. And, unless you've been dead for the last week, you will get a sugar buzz from just one piece.
Now, on to the recipe.
Texas Sheet Cake
Put flour and sugar in a mixing bowl.
Melt butter in pan, add water and cocoa and bring to a boil. Pour over flour and sugar while mixing. Beat well.
Add all other ingredients in the order listed. Mix well. Batter will be almost completely liquid.
Pour into a greased 9"x13" pan. Bake at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes. Be sure to test for doneness using a toothpick as oven temperatures vary greatly.
While it is baking, make the frosting.
Melt butter. Add cocoa, milk and vanilla. Bring to a boil. Turn heat off. Add sugar and nuts. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
Important! Frost the cake while still warm from the oven. If the cake is cool, the frosting will not spread correctly.
--- Note ---
Some people like the cake to be thinner (brownie like). If so desired, use a 12"x18" pan to cook it in and reduce the time to 15-20 minutes. Be sure to double up on the frosting recipe as you have a larger surface to cover.
