How to Make Texas Buttermilk Sheet Cake-Annette's

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 15X10X1-inch jelly roll pan; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine 1 cup butter, 1/3 cup cocoa, and 1 cup of water. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. With an electric hand-held mixer on medium speed, beat chocolate mixture into the dry mixture until thoroughly blended. Add eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Beat for 1 minute (batter will be thin). Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in a 350° oven about 25 minutes or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Pour warm chocolate frosting over the warm cake, spreading evenly. Place cake in pan on a wire rack; cool thoroughly before cutting.
  5. ***Frosting***In a medium saucepan combine 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, and 7 tablespoons buttermilk. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat; add 3 1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until smooth. If desired, stir in 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans. Enjoy!
