Aunt Marilyn's Texas Fudge Sheet Cake

Aunt Marilyn's Texas Fudge Sheet Cake

2 sticks butter
5 T. cocoa
1 c. water
1 t. vanilla
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1 t. baking soda

*This entire recipe can be mixed in 1 pot...even the frosting).

Bring to a boil 1st three ingredients. Pour this over 2 c. flour & 2 c. sugar in a bowl. Mix in the baking soda and vanilla and then add the eggs & milk. Pour this mixture into a floured and greased 9x13 baking sheet (I like to use cocoa instead of flour to dust pan). Cook for 25-30 min @ 350 degrees.

1 c. butter
6 T. milk
4 T. cocoa
1/2 t. vanilla
1 pound powdered sugar
1 c. nuts (I prefer chopped pecans)...optional!

Bring butter, milk and cocoa to a boil. Add rest of ingredients and mix well. Spread hot on hot cake. If you want, sprinkle nuts on top...sometimes I just put nuts on half the cake for those that like them. This is a great dessert to serve at large functions. =) ENJOY!!!

YUM! That is Jeramy's FAVORITE cake, it looks pretty close to the same recipe even! I THINK I could try that one.

This isn't my mom Aunt Marilyn, is it? I don't think I've ever had this, but it looks scrumptious!
