Prep Time:20 minutes
Cook time:25 minutes

Cake Ingredients:

2 cups Flour
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Water
2 sticks of Butter
4 TSBP Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Frosting Ingredients:
1 stick Butter
4 TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
7 TBSP Buttermilk
1 pound Confectioners Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions:

• To Make The Cake:
• Preheat oven to 375°
• Spray a 15″x10″ jelly roll pan with a non-stick spray.
• In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar; set aside.
• Melt butter in a medium saucepan; stir in baking cocoa powder and water and bring to a boil. Pour the boiling cocoa mixture into the bowl with the flour mixture and mix with a spoon until blended.
• In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla, buttermilk and baking soda.
• Add the egg mixture to the cocoa mixture and stir until blended.
• Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
• As soon as you pull the cake from the oven, start making the frosting.
• Frosting Instructions:
• Sift confectioners sugar into a large bowl, set aside.
• Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat; add the 4 tablespoons cocoa powder and 7 tablespoons buttermilk. Bring to a low (barely there) boil.
• When the cocoa mixture reaches a boil, remove from heat.
• Stir in vanilla extract.
• Pour the liquid cocoa mixture into the bowl of sifted confectioners sugar and whisk together until smooth.
• Make certain you work quickly so that the frosting does set up in the bowl.
• Once the frosting is smooth, pour the frosting over the warm cake.
• Allow cake to cool and frosting to cool before serving.

When you pour on the icing, you are truly pouring it out of your bowl. Make sure it gets to the ends.

  1. Question on the Texas sheet cake. What’s the dimension of the sheet cake. I have I think 1/2 sheet cake pan 16″ x like 13 I think. Is that what your calling sheet cake? Nothing bigger would fit in my oven

  2. Hi Anne,
    Please can you let me know how much a stick of butter is, we don’t get sticks in South Africa. Rather 250g or 500g blocks. A weight in pounds will do me fine.
    Thanks in advance:)

  3. Do you use all purpose or self rising flour?

  4. How much is 15/16

  5. Use coffee in place of the water. You’ll love it!
