Mom's famous Texas Sheetcake - from Riverview Recipes

I am compiling all of my mom's great recipes because she is such a fabulous cook.

I got the name Riverview Recipes because that's the name of the street we lived on - Riverview Drive. They all evoke memories of happy times while living in that house. Please bear in mind that the measurements and ingredients are very

OLD FASHIONED. You can adapt them anyway you like. While digging them

out that was part of the charm, seeing the way we USED to do things. Enjoy !


Bring to Boil:

2 sticks of margarine (Oleo)

1 cup water

4 TBS (tablespoons) Cocoa ; SET ASIDE

Sift together:

2 cups Regular Flour

2 cups sugar

1/2 teaspoon of salt



2 eggs

1/2 cup of sour cream

Bake at 375 degress for 22- 25 minutes

Must use a jelly roll pan ( a large cookie sheet with rims on the sides that have

depth) about 1/2 inch to 1 inch high. Grease with margarine & dust with flour.


Bring to boil:

1 stick margarine (0leo)

4 Tablespoons cocoa

6 tablespoons milk

Remove from heat. ADD:

1 Box Confectioner's Sugar

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 teaspoon vanilla.

Cool cake slightly

Ice while warm

Enjoy........great for picnics. I guarantee this will be a KID favorite. Great for

gatherings and get-togethers. It disappears very quickly.
