Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
A good cake, easy to make, etc., but even though I increased the cocoa powder in both the cake and frosting to five tablespoons, it just wasn't chocolaty enough. There was too much of the icing as well, in my opinion , but then I'm not someone who cares much for frosting. My favorite chocolate cake is the One Bowl Chocolate Cake on this site, and I prefer it with a homemade custard sauce or just plain.
Simple to make, moist, tender and tasty.I made half a recipe in a 7" x 11" pan. Since I usually find baking too sweet, I cut the amount of sugar by half. After reading tkitchens' review, I also used strong coffee instead of water.I did not make the frosting and it was good without it.
Chocolate Texas Sheet CakeFor additional rich flavor, I use 1 cup of strong coffee in place of the water.

If Kristie will heat the milk, butter and cocoa briefly on high heat then add powdered sugar, vanilla and a dash of cinnamon she will have a more fudge like frosting that needs to be ready to frost cake within minutes of removal from oven. our family likes pecan pieces sprinkled over top. happy eating "The native Texas Grandma"
