Saturday Fun - Chocolate Sheet Cake

I love good mail days. In my book, yesterday was a great mail day. Why? Because this arrived:

Isn't it cute? It's Brayden's Easter bucket! I ordered it through Etsy (of course!). You can visit Monkey See Boutique by clicking here!

We ran some errands today and have done a little more redecorating. We were going to antique a mirror but the rain clouds kept threatening us so we held off. With that extra time, I decided to make my mom's Chocolate Buttermilk Sheetcake. It is SO good and she said I could share the recipe with you, so here it is!

2 C flour
2 C sugar
1 stick marg
1/2 C crisco
4 heaping T of cocoa powder
1 C water
1/2 C buttermilk
2 eggs
1 t baking soda
1 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon

1 stick marg
4 T cocoa powder
6 T milk
1 box powdered sugar

Preheat your oven to 350.

Sift together flour, cinnamon, soda and sugar. In a saucepan, combine marg, crisco, cocoa, water and vanilla. Once it reached a slight boil, pour into flour mixture. Combine well then add buttermilk and eggs (one at a time). Pour into a greased 11*16 cookie sheet. Bake 20-30 min's.

Once the cake is almost done, melt the marg, cocoa and milk in a saucepan. Once combined pour over the powdered sugar. Add more milk if needed. Pour warm icing over the warm cake.
