Chocolate Sheet Cake recipe

I finally got this recipe from Mom. I know Kate that it doesn't help you
any, but you still might be interested in it for the future. It is totally
decadent and totally bad for you and practically makes your teeth hurt when
you eat it, but it is so good. Ejnoy

I just made one similar to this a week ago. We shared some of it but not enough and I didn't freeze any, so now I need to throw some away. It was very good though.

That is a classic cake I see show up at many many quilt guild events. It is really good. I have never made one but they are really yummie. There is a light version:

It probably isn't worth bothering with though ; ) Anything with 3 sticks of butter is probably not safe for me to be around either. : ( Taria

i, too, substitute brewed cold coffee in chocolate cake. and i add a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, too. gives it a bit of a gourmet flavor. But i think i'll make this one just as is to see if i like it plain. chocolate is chocolate....can't go wrong with that!! amy in CNY
