The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake

The BEST Buttermilk Sheet Cake recipe { lilluna.com }

 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:

The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake
 
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Add eggs, oil, buttermilk, hot water. Mix all together and pour into jelly roll pan.
  3. Bake at 350-375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  4. 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!

    Just wondering if 3 tsps baking soda is a lot in ratio 2 cups of flour?

  10. 11

    the white chocolate sheet cake sounds yummie! can you use buttermilk to make this cake?

    • 12

      Yes, the recipe calls for buttermilk, but if you don’t have buttermillk you can use milk + 1 tsp. lemon juice – works great too. :)

    How many cups is a box of powdered sugar? They don’t sell “boxes of powdered sugar” in my area of Canada and I want to get the correct consistency.

  12. 15

    I made this cake the other day, and I must say it was REALLY GOOD. It was soft and tasty. Will make it again. Thanks.

    On the chocolate sheet cake recipe…..I was reading how to make the icing. What is one “cube” of butter? Is that a stick (1/2 cup)?
    Thanks,

    Anna

    If I’m making two half sheet cakes, can I still use this recipe and divide the batter in half? I’m making two half ones for a party and would love to use this recipe!

      I think it would be fine if you have sheet cake pans that are about half the size of a regular pan. I don’t have any so I’m not sure of the measurements. :/
