this is one of the old posts that i never got the chance to schedule on one of my old blogs. so the pictures are awful. like terribly awful. the recipe though is super delicious! keep reading to get the idea of why i’m posting this ugly thing. there’s a hint listed down below, but it won’t be posted for another week or so. worth the wait though.
You won’t understand the meaning of chocolate cake until you’ve tried THIS chocolate cake. This is one of the best chocolate cakes that I have ever had and I just couldn’t stop stuffing it into my mouth, even when they were all puffed out like a chipmunk! And ya, ya I know the look of it isn’t all that great, but didn’t anyone ever tell you “don’t judge a book by its cover”, or in this instance, cake by it’s frosting? I’ll just tell you that this was a rushed job, and although it’s sub par on the outside it is superb on the inside!
This lovely little thang is moist and very chocolatey. I’ll tell you a secret, “it has chocolate chips in it too!”.
Maybe that wasn’t quite a secret, I suppose the chocolate chips on top of the cake kind of gave away that notion, but does it really matter? It’s more chocolate on the inside! Anyways this is only part of a really neat post that I’ll put up in a few days. It’s super mysterious and overly groovy (<- that there is a hint! If you want to take a guess at it write it in the comments!) In the meantime enjoy this delicious chocolate cake!
chocolate sheet cake
Makes one 9.25 x 13.25 cake
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup oil
3/4 cup milk + 2 tbsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup boiling water
Preheat the oven to 375*F and grease and line a 9.25 x 13.25 inch pan.
Start by boiling some water in a small pot. Measure out the milk and add the vinegar and let sit until the milk curdles, about 5 minutes.
In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda, and salt and mix to combine. In another bowl combine the eggs, oil, milk/vinegar, and vanilla and whisk together. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix to combine. Once fully combined and the water is boiling, carefully measure it out and gently mix into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and then sprinkle as much chocolate chips as you want on top of the batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center (although be careful to not mistake melted chocolate chips for batter). let the cake cool completely.
Once the cake is done, let cool and then frost with your choice of frosting!
