Sarah’s Texas Sheet Cake
1 cup buttermilk
¼ cup water
½ cup butter (melted)
½ cup butter
¼ cup cocoa
¼ cup milk
4 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
Quarter sheet pan (or 9×9” pan)
What you'll need
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Pour cake batter into greased sheet pan.
Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until top of cake springs back when touched.
As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, prepare the frosting. Melt butter in a medium pot over medium-low heat. Whisk in the cocoa and milk, then bring mixture to a boil for 30 seconds before immediately remove from stove top. Whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.
Pour hot icing immediately over cake and top with chopped nuts, if desired. Slice and serve!
