TT: Tome Sheet Cake

Tuesday again, which means it's time for another edition of Tasty Tuesday!

This week's recipe comes to me from my step-mother, who lives in Tome, NM. She calls this recipe her "Tome Sheet Cake."


Tome Sheet Cake

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups margarine, divided (1 cup, and 1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup water
  • 4-6 Tbs cocoa, divided (2-3 Tbs, and 2-3 Tbs)
  • 6 Tbs milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 lb box powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, salt, eggs, sour cream, and baking soda in a mixing bowl.
  3. In a pot, bring 1 cup margarine, water, and 2-3 Tbs of cocoa to boil.
  4. Combine boiling ingredients in with the mixing bowl while hot, and beat with electric mixer, approximately 2 minutes.
  5. Pour into an ungreased jelly-roll pan (10 1/2 x 15 x 1 in) and bake 20 minutes.
  6. While cake is baking, bring 1/2 cup margarine, milk, and 2-3 Tbs of cocoa to boil.
  7. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla, pecans, and powdered sugar.
  8. Ice cake before cooling.

Enjoy!

Sheet Cakes remind me of my Nana and church when I was little. I'ma gonna try this recipe over the weekend--we're finally gonna get some rain, and I'll have to have SOMETHING to do, won't I? :) BTW, thanks for coming by and visiting The Great State of Wisconsin today!
