Chocolate Sheet Cake

Oh, Pioneer Woman...I wish I could like your recipes! They look so good, but so far...well, it's just not workin' for me. Sorry.

I decided to give this recipe a try. I already have a Texas Sheet Cake that I like, but I thought maybe PW could improve upon it so I gave her Chocolate Sheet Cake a try. I even took it to a work staff meeting. Everyone was nice about it. Some loved it; others left it on their plate after one bite.

It was just too sugary! It fell apart (for some that's good), but I thought it was too moist & crumbly. This is a pic of my attempt at her cake:

I'm going to stick to my tried and true recipe...until another one comes along to tempt me! :)

Texas Cake


2 sticks margarine
4 T. cocoa
1 C water

Mix these ingredients and bring to a boil.

2 C flour
½ t. salt
1 t. baking soda

Put in ungreased cookie sheet (large) and bake 20 min at 350 degrees.

Melt 1 stick margarine, 4 T. cocoa and 6 T milk and bring to a boil. Add 1 box powdered sugar, 1 C nuts (if desire), and 1 t. vanilla. Frost cake while warm.
