Scrumptious Chocolate Sheet Cake

The name of this recipe says it all. I have been making this since I was a little girl, and I just can't get enough of it. It's simple and sweet, and really doesn't cost a lot to make.

Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Stick of margarine
  • 1 Cup of Water
  • 1 Cup of Vegetable Oil
  • 4 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Beaten Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Buttermilk (you can use regular or canned milk)
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Vanialla extract
Frosting Ingredients:
  • 2 1/4 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2Tbs Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 Stick Margarine
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
  • 4 Tbs milk or canned milk
Cake Directions:
  1. Mix flour and sugar in a bowl and set aside
  2. In a sauce pan bring to a boil Margarine, oil, water, and cocoa powder
  3. Add boiled mixture to the flour and sugar
  4. Next add buttermilk, eggs while mixing quickly to insure the egg doesn't get to warm and cook, and baking soda, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  5. Mix batter well and pour into a greased 13x9 pan
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-25 minutes depending on your over (Mine is done in 15)
Frosting Directions:
  1. While the cake is baking prepare cake frosting
  2. In a sauce pan melt margarine
  3. Once melted add cocoa, vanilla, and milk and mix well
  4. Slowly add powdered sugar
  5. Use a wisk with speed to remove any lumps.
  6. Add enough to thicken up frosting (approx 2 1/4 Cups)
Frost Cake as soon as it's taken out of the oven. Allow to cool.
