Oh, yeah...a definite five star recipe! =)Your mom's method of making a chocolate syrup to add to the batter is a new one for me. (I cooled this syrup a bit before adding to flour. Thought it might make the cake dry if it was too hot. How do you do it?) I am sooo happy you shared this family treasure. It certainly was a great hit at work.
Sounds like Texas Sheet Cake
This was delicious! And so easy to make! My only problem with the recipe was that it didn't specify how long to boil the cocoa mixture. So I just let it boil for about thirty seconds. I made it in a shaped Dora the Explorer pan for my son's birthday, and it was so so good. Got nothing but compliments on it. I topped it with buttercream frosting instead of what was in the recipe though, because we needed to color the icing. The cake itself was gorgeous; our decorating left a little to be desired, but it tasted fantastic. Thanks so much for the great recipe!
This cake was absolutely delicious! I didn't put all the frosting on it, instead I served the cake warm with a dollop of cool whip and then drizzled the frosting over that and it was wonderful. Nice and chocolatey but not overpoweringly rich at all! Would be absolutely wonderful with some vanilla ice cream, kinda reminded me of the applebees cake with the white chocolate center obviously without the white chocolate center but the chocolate and frosting part tasted like that!
Hi Jude, i tried making this cake twice but could not achieve the fluffy chocolate cakes we see in bakeries-mine felt rubbery. May i know what flour did you use? Was it plain flour/cake flour/self-raising flour? Really lost here as i am still quite new to baking cakes. Many Thanks!:) P/S: i have posted a picture of how my cake turned out on both occasions. Hope that you guys could give me some advice!
This was really good. It was my first chocolate cake. I will be making this again. It was easy and fun to make.
Tastes delicious like Texas Sheet cake. The ingredients are almost identical. Only this recipe uses buttermilk and the other uses sour cream. Great both ways.
This was fun and easy to make! The cake has a very nice texture. The only thing I did different was to add a teaspoon of vanilla to the frosting.
The cake was certainly good, but the taste was too sweet.
A friend used to make this cake and I always loved it. I made it today for my DS birthday and it's as good as I remembered!
