Texas Sheet Cake

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
4 Tbsp cocoa
1 cup water
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix and set aside your flour and sugar.
In a large pan, bring the butter, cocoa, and water to a boil. Take the pan off the burner and add the vanilla, buttermilk, soda and cinnamon, and the slightly beaten eggs. (I always add the eggs last because if you aren't stirring fast enough they can cook in the heat of the butter/cocoa mixture!) Mix in the sugar and the flour and pour all into a Pam sprayed jelly roll pan. Bake at a preheated 400' oven for 20 minutes.


1 1/2 cups white sugar
6 Tbsp butter
6 Tbsp milk
1/2 to 1 cup chocolate chips.
Combine sugar, butter, and milk in saucepan, and bring to a boil - boil for one minute. Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips. Beat until smooth and spread over cooled cake. Yumm!
