Along with a simple black dress every woman needs a simple chocolate sheet cake recipe! A good friend shared this recipe with me over 20 years ago and it never disappoints. It is delicious!
Mix: 2 cups flour and 2 cups sugar, set aside.
Boil: 1 stick margarine, 4 Tblsp cocoa, 3/4cup oil and 1 cup water
Pour over flour-sugar mixture and mix.
Add 2 well beaten eggs, mix.
Add 1/2 cup buttermilk, 1 tsp soda and 1 tsp vanilla, mix.
Pour into a greased jelly roll pan or a 9x13 pan.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

While the cake is baking prepare the icing.
Boil: 6 Tblsp milk, 4 Tblsp cocoa, 1 stick margarine.
Add 1 box sifted powered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla.
Beat until smooth, add 1 cup chopped nuts,
Pour over cake while hot.
