The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake. Ever.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yes, it really is that good.

Don’t believe me? Take it from The Pioneer Woman who blogs about all kinds of life, family and yummy goodness over at her site found here .

Now, I’ve made this Sheet cake twice in a 3 week span and for two totally different get-togethers.  Elderly Uncles loosened their belts, Aunties moaned, children hovered and grown men darned near cried.  Women, trusted friends, took an extra piece home with them just … because.  Single friends of the hubbs gave him an all-knowing look that says you lucky ….

I’ve abstained in the crowd but enjoyed a sliver with coffee the next morning and I have to say that tremendous housecleaning abilities soon followed.

Dieters beware.

This cake contains just under 4 – count ‘em – 4 sticks of butter.  8 tablespoons of cocoa.  White Sugar AND powdered sugar.  But … one bite and your eyes will roll back in your head, toes will curl and you might just leave a scratch on the sides of your breakfast table. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

For the Best Chocolate Sheet Cake. Ever  mosey on over to the Pioneer Woman’s site where you can print off this recipe and bake it to your heart’s delight.  Claim it as your own, I don’t care. But be warned: you might want to wear something stretchy.

Here’s the link!

  1. Whoa – 4 sticks of butter. But, then, PW does love her butter!

    • Yes but I have to say … mmm mmm good. I can handle a little “Parkay” once in a while but butter is where it’s at for baking! Cheers, MJ

  2. Everything tastes better with butter! Even chocolate!

  3. 4 sticks of butter–I like the way you think.

    • This is a really yummy cake with all things good in it = and all REAL ingredients, I like that! Thanks, Melissa, for stopping by 🙂 MJ

  4. Awesome slideshow! Chocolicious to the core 🙂

    • Thank you; that fudgy icing took me right back to my Grandmother’s kitchen. Mmm mmm good. Plus – it was fun to see other people’s reactions to it … and that’s the main reason I like to cook = for others! Cheers, MJ

  5. The button on my jeans just snapped reading this. Is that a bad sign?
    I love the looks the single ones gave your hubby… as they should 🙂

  6. I love the Pioneer Woman!! We lived in Bartlesville, OK (where Ree Drummond grew up and a few miles from where she now lives) for four years. So happy for her success. She certainly deserves it! Very talented woman in many ways!

    • Yes, I agree. She’s fun to read, her recipes consist of “real” foods that I can find in a local store and her photographs are outstanding. Great stuff!! Cheers to you in OK all the way from me in MI. MJ

  7. You say just under 4 sticks of butter, but that seems like an awful lot.

  8. I have a recipe that I believe is similar, but my frosting don’t have nuts. And there may be just a tad bit less butter in my version. I have to try this one…wouldn’t want to miss out on a good thing! I’m always looking for a fun treat to take to my office…maybe this is the one for this week!


    • Her recipe called for pecans but they’re really $$ where I live; I used chopped walnuts and they were just perfect. This is definitely a crowd pleaser and I’m sure your office friends would enjoy it :). Let me know if you make it .. MJ

  9. Oh yeah. The Pioneer Woman has the BEST recipes! And everything uses lots of butter! I was given her cook book as a Christmas gift and love it. She makes it SO fun to cook because everyone thinks you’re a phenomenal cook when you make her recipes.

    • I agree; I’m going to have to get her cookbook. I’ve made a few of her recipes and this one’s been a big fat hit every time. Cheers! MJ
