Chocolate Sheet Cake T & T
Mix together 2 C. flour and 2 C. sugar. Bring to rapid boil - 1 stick of butter, 1/2 c. vegetable oil, 1 C. water and 4 Tbl. cocoa. Pour over flour mixture and blend well. Stir in 2 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. cinnamon. 1 tsp. baking soda and 1/2 c. buttermilk. Pour onto ungreased 9/13/1" cookie sheet with narrow rim. Bake at 400ºF for 20 minutes.
Frosting: Bring to rapid boil, 1 stick (1/2 c.) butter, 6 Tbl. milk and 4 Tbl. cocoa. Add 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. powdered sugar and 1 C. chopped pecans. Spread on sheet cake as soon as it is removed from oven. Note: I made this years ago (in the early to mid 70's) when my kids were very young and they loved this! They were always begging me to make it!
