Another Chocolate Sheet Cake

In the Chocolate Sheet Cake Post I wrote a week or 2 ago, I talked about another cake recipe that I grew up on and was still hands down my favorite chocolate sheet cake. I got the recipe from my aunt this weekend so I wanted to share it with you guys. I havent had a chance to make it this week cause I am making some desserts for a birthday party Friday night, but as soon as I do Ill update with some photos. I will say it looks a lot like the one here, but just slightly different amount of ingredient and the addition of cinnamon.

Chocolate Sheet Cake

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees

In large bowl sift:
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups of sugar

In saucepan:
1 stick margarine
1/2 cup shortening
4 tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 cup water

Bring to a rapid boil. Stir until everything is dissolved. Pour over flour and sugar and mix well.

1/2 butermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix well and pour into greased and floured 13 x 9 pan or jelly roll pan.

Bake 20-25 mins

Five minutes before the cake is done start the frosting.


In saucepan:
1 stick margaine
4 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
6 Tbsp. Milk

Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1 box powdered sugar (1 lb), 1 tsp. vanilla, and 1 cup chopped nuts (optional), Beat until sugar. Pour and spread on warm cake.

Hope you guys can try this one out its soo good! I actually think these might make yummy cupcakes so maybe I will try that out soon. Print This
