Savannah Sheet Cake
I strongly believe that there are two kinds of people in this world: those that live for chocolate and those that don’t really care about it. I consider myself to be in the latter group. I mean, occasionally a candy bar will call my name in the grocery store checkout line but that’s just about it. All of that changed recently when my friend Pam tweeted that she was making a chocolate sheet cake with chocolate pecan frosting. It was all I could think about. I demanded that she post the recipe ASAP and then I made it shortly after that.
There’s something so special about chocolate sheet cakes like this. They’re so simple – no softening butter, no layers, just cake. And frosting. Oh the frosting. It’s the best part of any sheet cake. You know, the kind of frosting that develops that sugary crust before you’re even done spreading it on the cake. The best ever, in other words.
The cake is awesome! Even my husband, who isn’t a chocolate fan (are we freaks or what?!), loved it. He said it was one of the best chocolate cakes he’s ever had.
