Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake

For additional rich flavor, I use 1 cup of strong coffee in place of the water.

If Kristie will heat the milk, butter and cocoa briefly on high heat then add powdered sugar, vanilla and a dash of cinnamon she will have a more fudge like frosting that needs to be ready to frost cake within minutes of removal from oven. our family likes pecan pieces sprinkled over top. happy eating "The native Texas Grandma"
