Best Loved Recipes {Chocolate-Buttermilk Sheet Cake}

Judges: Wes and Abby

Rating: - This cake is also known as Texas Sheet Cake, which has some sentimental value to Wes and I because we had this at our wedding rehearsal dinner.  This cake was exceptionally moist and not super chocolate-y (which I like).  I took this dessert to small group but never got an official rating from anyone.  Small group friends, feel free to let me know your rating.

2 c. all-purpose flour (I used half whole wheat)
2 c. sugar  
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. butter (my kind of recipe)
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs
1/2 c. buttermilk
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla

1. In medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

2. In medium saucepan, combine butter, cocoa powder and 1 cup water.  Bring mixture just to boiling; stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Add the cocoa mixture to flour mixture and beat with mixer on medium to high speed until combined.  Add eggs, buttermilk and vanilla.  Beat for 1 minute.  Pour batter in greased 9x13 pan.

3. Bake in a 350 oven about 35 minutes.

4. Pour warm Chocolate-Buttermilk Frosting over the warm cake, spreading evenly.  Place cake in pan on a wire rack; cool thoroughly.
