Texas Sheet Cake or Chocolate Buttermilk Cake from Better Homes & Gardens
Thursday, August 13, 2009
Me? My inspiration is a lot less stunning.
I wanted to use up my buttermilk and felt nostalgic. Yes, nothing like almost expired dairy products to get you going. I grabbed my Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book (you know you secretly love the red plaid cover) and searched for desserts that used buttermilk.
And, low and behold, I found an easy recipe for Chocolate Buttermilk Cake AKA Texas Sheet Cake.
Oh, a chocolate cake with so many names. Texas Sheet Cake, Chocolate-Buttermilk Cake, Buttermilk Brownies. I made mine in a 13 x 9 pan, but some recipes also suggests a 15 x 10 pan for more brownie-likeness.
I thought it was a bit too sweet, but my co-worker says she is adjusting her "favorites listing" again and putting this on the top of it! They are super easy and use the "boil in a pot" method to make the batter and frosting. Really couldn't be easier!
