Chocolate Sheet Cake

This delicious chocolate sheet cake is definitely a “go to.”  I almost always have the ingredients on hand and can make it in under an hour with just a moments notice.  That comes in handy for funeral dinners, impromptu get togethers, and when my husband forgets to tell me that I need to make a cake for the concession stand tonight the rare bout of miscommunication.  I also am thankful that it is sheet cake-sized, so I can easily get 20 servings from the recipe.

    I made this cake yesterday. YUM! I was excited to try this as I’ve never made a sheet cake before. It wasn’t until I was making the frosting that I realized your directions weren’t specific enough for a newbie like me! I wasn’t sure if the frosting should have a cup or two of powdered sugar. After going with two and “icing” the cake, I really should have used more like four. 🙂 The cake was tasty and the football team ate it up! I did end up making two, the second frosted with lifeasmom’s buttercream. Both were a hit!

    • Sorry about that. I have never once taken the time to actually measure how much powdered sugar I use. Whoops! But yes, more like 3 to 4. 😉
