Chocolate Sheet Cake from Alberta Burrill

I am sorry I do not have a good picture of Alberta. Since my sister has passed the recipes on to me, I will put her picture up for the time being.
This is with Fred Burrill after their wedding.


1/2 cup of Oleo*
1/2 cup oil (There was not much available except corn oil)
1 Cup of water
4 Tablespoons of cocoa

Sift together:

2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Combine with the boil(this would have to be cooled)and beat well.
Then add:

1/2 cup of buttermilk
1 teaspoon of soda(I might combine this with the dry ingredients to distribute evenly)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Pour into a greased jellyroll pan or deep cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Frost while the cake is hot.



1 stick of oleo
4 Tablespoons of cocoa
1/3 cup of buttermilk

Remove from the heat and add:

1 box of confectioneary sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of chopped walnuts

*Does anyone remember getting Oleo Margarine in a little bag and having to break the color packet in the bag and massage the color through the Oleo?
