Cookie Sheet Chocolate Cake

First off, to my followers, I am SO sorry I have not posted in forever.  Literally, forever.  I have gotten a few requests to start posting recipes again.  You see, I am pregnant with number 2 and food just has not been appealing to me lately, hence the no baking/cooking really.  But good news, I am back!  Or at least trying to be!  Haha!  So with out further ado, a new recipe! :)

This has been one of my favorite chocolate recipes since forever!  Whenever my mom would say, “I want something chocolate, what should I make?”  This was always the response.  I recently made this but forgot to take a picture, so I borrowed this from THIS site.  The finished product to my recipe looks just like it and trust me, it is DELICIOUS!


Measure in bowl:
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar

Bring to boil in sauce pan then add to the bowl:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
3 or 4 Tbsp. cocoa
1/2 cup shortening

Add in order to bowl:
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Pour in cookie sheet and bake at 400 F for 20 minutes



Heat to boiling:
1/2 cup butter
6 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. cocoa

After previous ingredients reach a boil, add:
1 box powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla(nuts if desired, I never add them)

Poke holes into hot cake with a fork and pour frosting over, spreading evenly.

    Isn't this the best cake?! It's the same recipe that my Mom gave me while I was growing up. I make it for my family all the time. We love it! I think it must be a Utah thing. :)

    growing up my mom always made this for large group cookouts. She added cinnamon and I was never much of a fan until one day I made it without the cinnamon! YUM. I think I will make it for after church tomorrow.. I haven't made it in years!
