Chocolate Sheet Cake... Pioneer Woman Style.

Chocolate cake. Mmmmmm.
Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Mmmmmm.

I love chocolate cake. I mean... I love chocolate, by itself. But I love chocolate cake much, much more. And chocolate sheet cake is a different kind of chocolate cake... because it's got a sweeter, thinner icing that is almost as thick as the actual cake itself.

I had been eyeing this recipe for chocolate sheet cake for awhile and when I finally decided to make it, I opted to halve the recipe and bake it in a little glass casserole dish, so the cake part was actually a little thicker than a normal sheet cake.... but, that's fine by me, because this cake was super moist.

The only issue I had with this cake was the flavor lacked "umph." And afterwards, as I was looking over the recipe I realized that was due to an error on my part.... the recipe calls for SALTED butter, not unsalted butter. So... if you are going to use unsalted butter, be sure to add some salt, because that will take this recipe from good to excellent.

This cake is easy to make and would be a crowd pleaser (or a one person pleaser like it turned out to be for me).

Pioneer Woman's Best Chocolate Sheet Cake Ever.

** Recipe Note... I used half dark cocoa and half regular cocoa in the recipe. Sometimes I think regular cocoa's color makes baked goods look... I dunno... dull.
