TEXAS Sheet Cake

There are so many versions of Texas Sheet Cake out there.  This is our version.  It is super chocolaty and really satisfies our sweet tooth.  I love this cake because you don’t have to wait for it to cool before you put the frosting on.  If I make this cake I want it NOW.  I don’t want to wait for it to cool.

1 cup butter
1 cup cold coffee (can use water if you prefer)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
