Grandma's Texas Sheet Cake

This is Grandma Nelson's recipe for Texas Sheet Cake. It is very similar to the Pioneer Woman's Best Chocolate Cake Ever recipe. I do like Grandma's just a bit more. I love this recipe too because it is simple, but so good and nice enough for company.

Texas Sheet Cake
Combine in mixing bowl:
2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

For the next step you will need:
1 c. butter
1 c. water
1/2 c. sour cream
4 T. cocoa
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

In a saucepan bring butter, water and cocoa to a boil. Remove from heat. Add eggs, sour cream, baking soda and vanilla. Add to flour mixture. Pour into a large cookie sheet, greased and floured. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350*. Ice while hot.

1/2 c. butter
6 T. milk
4 T. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar
chopped nuts

In a saucepan bring butter, cocoa, and milk to a boil. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar, vanilla, and nuts. Ice cake straight from the oven.
