Texas Sheet Cake: A long time favorite

This cake has been around for years and years and I still make it.  Although now I make Peanut Butter Icing for the top because my grandchildren just love peanut butter anything and especially on a chocolate cake.

2 sticks margarine(this is what the original call for)I have used butter also.

1 cup water
4 tablespoons cocoa
Bring the above to a slight boil, and allow to cool slightly.

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar (I used 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 tsp. salt ( I eliminate it if I use salted butter)
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. baking soda

In a large bowl, beat sugar with eggs, add flour and baking soda and salt ..Beat in cocoa mixture..Beat in sour cream last..The batter will be thin and watery..

Grease and flour 10 x 15 inch cookie sheet.. Bake 375 degrees for approximately 20 to 22 minutes.






It is really a wonderful moist cake..and you can get a lot of slices from it.

Great chocolate cake.  I made a peanut butter icing!
