Hi K.,

Well, I can find chocolate sheet cake recipes, but none with holes and none with coffee in the icing. The holes are an easy thing to do. You just take a wooden spoon and punch holes in the cake while it's still warm - before icing it. Below is a regular chocolate sheet cake recipe. Sorry I couldn't find the exact one. If you can find out the name of the cake, that might help.


  Chocolate Sheet Cake

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup margarine
1 cup water
3 tbsp. cocoa
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
Sift flour, sugar, and salt.

Put margarine, water, and cocoa into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Pour
over flour mixture.

In another bowl, beat eggs and add soda, milk, and vanilla. Add to above and
mix well.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes in a greased 15-1/2"x10-1/2"x1"
jelly roll pan.

Frost with Sheet Cake Chocolate Icing while cake is still warm.

Sheet Cake Chocolate Icing

1/2 cup margarine
3 tbsp. cocoa
6 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 box powdered sugar
Heat margarine, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan. Don't boil. Remove and add
sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Pour over warm chocolate sheet cake.

Timm pointed out that a cake iced this way is often called a "poke cake."
