This is by far the best chocolate cake recipe I've ever made. I used milk because I didn't have any buttermilk and put the glaze on top as suggested. It's so moist and amazing. I will make this ...

Needs salt I think. The butter/oil combo is a good idea though - don't be tempted to substitute as both give different textures/flavor. As for flavor I think this could use a dash of instant cof...

We used to call this Dean's Sheet Cake. Lost the recipe when we remodeled our kitchen! I always add a "glaze" of 1/2 cup butter, 6 Tbs of milk and 4-6 Tbs of cocoa. Melt in pan on stove or mic...

I doubled the recipe and baked longer in an 11x15 sheet cake pan. It came out very well - very moist and a good texture. I was skeptical because the batter is very liquidy, but there were no pro...

This cake tastes great, and isn't hard to make. I added chocolate chips, just because I'm a chocoholic! BUT- if you are making this cake in a jelly roll pan, do not, I repeat, DO NOT double the ...

This cake turned out great. I doubled the recipe and used an 11 x 15" sheet cake pan. The pan required 11 cups and this was exactly right. It was very dense, more like a brownie.

I used this recipe to make cupcakes today and after a chocolate cupcake baking debacle yesterday, this recipe was a satisfying reminder that turning out a good cupcake is very easy so long as yo...

I made this cake in a 9x13 inch pan and it turned out very well, even though I had to bake it for almost 40 minutes. I liked the flavor but the texture was a little less moist than I would have ...
