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 recipe often.;)
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 microwave. Add 3 cups powdered sugar. Mix well by hand. As soon as cake is out of oven poke it all over with a toothpick. Pour the glaze over and it will melt on the cake and dribble down those holes. The top will shine. Cool and cut into bars. This seem to keep forever (if it lasts) when refrigerated. Now my new kitchen is complete. Thanks for sharing.
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 problems. Also added a bit of chocolate extract to the liquid ingredients for more chocolate flavor.
This was really delicious...but it turned out to be rather flat (and I can't imagine how you could feed 24 people with it). I used a 10X15 pan and it was still not very big. I must have done something incorrectly...but it was so simple and easy I can't imagine what I could have done wrong. Has anyone else had this issue?
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 recipe like some of the reviewers did. (unless you want 2 cakes!)Apparently they have a deeper pan. I doubled the recipe and it filled my jelly roll pan to the brim! So then I had to pour 1/2 the batter into another pan. Good thing I had another pan!
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 you begin with a good recipe. I added 1/2 teaspoon of salt but other than that I stuck to the recipe. These are moist medium chocolate and delicious. Period.
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 coffee or sub the water for coffee to enhance the flavor otherwise it isn't that chocolately.
