I hope everyone had a great weekend.
Today, I thought I’d share a recipe that is a family favorite (we seriously make it ALL the time!!)
I seriously think it’s The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake EVER. If you don’t believe me, just try it. I promise it will not disappoint. It also makes a lot, which is nice if you’re taking it to an event.
And even though I really don’t like this word – it’s SO moist. I seriously can never eat just one piece!! Here’s the recipe:
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups sugar
- ½ cup Hershey cocoa
- 3 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup oil
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup hot water
- Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Add eggs, oil, buttermilk, hot water. Mix all together and pour into jelly roll pan.
- Bake at 350-375 degrees for 20 minutes.
- FROSTING: Cook in pan - Melt 1 cube butter, 2 level teaspoons of cocoa, 4-6 tablespoons of milk, 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 box of powdered sugar. Mix and spread over warm cake.
NOTE: What’s great too is that if you’re out of buttermilk, we just use regular milk with a tsp. of lemon juice. It does just the trick, and you’d never be able to tell that you didn’t use buttermilk. Sweet!
