Chocolate Sheet Cake

Mom always made this cake when we were growing up and still does.  The hint of cinnamon makes it unique and it feeds a bunch.

Bring to a boil:

1 cup water
1 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa

In a bowel mix:

2 cup flour
2 cup sugar
1 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk

Combine and mix all together, pour into a greased and floured sheet cake pan

Bake @ 350 for about 20 to 25 min

While cake is baking, make icing

Bring to boil
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter (Mom always uses Blue Bonnet)
2 tsp vanilla
Beat in 1 box powdered sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
Stir in 2 cups pecan pieces

Mom pokes holes in cake and ices while hot
