Home-made Chocolate Fudge Sheet Cake

This is for my sister-in-law Stace :) We visited the local pumpkin patch this morning and had a blast!

This recipe is not for the faint of heart or dieting stomach.

2 Cups flour 2 Cups sugar 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp soda Mix together flour, sugar, salt, and soda.

In a saucepan combine:
1 Cup water
1/2 Cup oil
1 stick butter (you can cheat with margarine, I use BUTTER)
5 Tbl cocoa
Bring this to a boil and pour over flour mixture. Stir well.

Add to mix:
2 eggs (slightly beaten, but not defeated)
1/2 Cup buttermilk or sour milk (I use regular is I don't have either)
1 tsp vanilla

Bake in a greased 11x15 pan at 350 for 20-25 minutes. While cake is cooking prepare topping for cake.

Combine in a saucepan
1 stick butter
4 Tbl cocoa
6 Tbl milk
Cook until butter is melted on low heat.

Add to this
1 LB of powered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
and if you like 1 Cup of chopped nuts

Mix well and pour onto HOT, FRESH OUT OF THE OVEN cake!

Enjoy this beautiful fall weather, love and miss everyone
