Texas Sheet Cake

Lest I forget to post this horrible "I can hardly read it" recipe before the next time my mom asks me if I have it (even though it is HER favorite), I'd better do it now.  My Aunt Kathy & Uncle Skip's Texas Sheet Cake Recipe!  Ta da!
Texas Sheet Cake
Preheat oven to 350.
2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine these and set aside.

In a saucepan, bring to a boil:
1 cup butter
4 tbsp cocoa
1 cup water
Then add to the flour mixture.

Now also add:
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp vanilla
and mix well.

Spray jellyroll pan (see below) with Pam and bake 20-25 minutes at 350.

1/2 cup melted butter
3 tsp cocoa
4 tbsp buttermilk
1 box confectioner's sugar
Mix well and pour over cake while warm.   
Allow to cool and slice into large squares to be individually tin foiled so they can then be gifted to your mother who can store them in the freezer and enter Nirvana any old time she pleases.

You'll need one of these if you don't already have one:

I will be in Texas next week and will inquire as to its authenticity.
