Bear Lake Sheet Cake

My sweet Grandma Munk wasn’t all that good at baking, but Bear Lake Sheet Cake was her specialty. The only time this wasn’t good was when it had been sitting in her pantry for too long. But even then, Grandpa Munk would eat it.

Bear Lake Sheet Cake

2 sticks margarine
4 T. cocoa
1 c. water
2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
1/2 t. salt
2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla

Frosting:
1 stick margarine
6 tbsp. milk
4 tbsp. cocoa
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 pound box powdered sugar
1/2 c. chopped nuts

Combine margarine, cocoa and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour over flour, sugar, and salt which has been combined in a small bowl. Mix and add eggs, milk, soda, and vanilla. Bake in greased and floured jelly roll pan at 375 for 30 minutes. Just before cake is done, bring first four ingredients of frosting to boil; pour over powdered sugar. Stir in nuts.
