The Pioneer Woman knows her stuff

The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake

This IS the best chocolate sheet cake ever. And I’m not just saying that because it’s the only one I’ve ever eaten. It IS delicious. And super moist and oh so chocolatey.

I’m officially in love. With the cake, not the Pioneer Woman. Well, maybe PW, too.

If you don’t know who I’m referring to (laughing as I type that), here’s her site:

www.thepioneerwoman.com

I visited her and the family earlier this year at her ranch in Oklahoma and we baked cupcakes and made cake pops for some guests. Actually, she made this chocolate sheet cake recipe then for the cupcakes we used. However, we made a different frosting to decorate with so I didn’t get to experience the full effect. I don’t know what took me so long to try her complete recipe. I’m kicking myself now. It’s so easy and pretty darn quick, too. You don’t even need a mixer. Nope. No mixer. But you do need a 12 X 18 jelly roll pan. I think that’s what deterred me a little. I kept picturing a 12 X 18 cake sitting on my counter. And, well… that’s a lot of cake.

But then, a couple of weeks ago I received a surprise from the UPS guy… or girl…

It was PW’s soon-to-be-released cookbook. I was so excited to see it. I got a preview of the cover back in March and here it was. Finished. Full of Pictures. And Full of Recipes.

Including her Chocolate Sheet Cake.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks

That settled it. No more procrastinating. Chocolate Sheet Cake here I come.

You’ll need 2 cups flour and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to start. Easy enough.

Sugar

Then pour on the sugar. Two cups of the sweet stuff. I like how this is going.

Butter

Melt some butter. Two sticks. Thank you.

While it’s melting, stir together 1/2 cup buttermilk, two eggs, 1 teaspoon baking soda…

Vanilla

And add a little vanilla. A teaspoon to be exact.

Cocoa

Back to the butter. Drop in four heaping tablespoons of cocoa please.

Mix it up

Mix that all up.

Pouring 3

Add a cup of boiling water and stir. Let bubble for just a minute and turn then off the heat.

Pouring 2

Then pour that over your flour, sugar and salt mixture and stir it all together.

Pouring 1

Add the buttermilk mixture and stir until it’s smooth.

Anyone having a little deja vous here? I kinda feel like PW right about now with all these step-by step photos. But really, I couldn’t resist posting all of these pouring shots.

Batter

See… here’s another one. Look at that batter. It’s glorious.

Sheet Cake

Place the pan in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes. I did 18.

And while the cake is baking, you can make the icing.

Butter and cocoa

Melt some more butter. One and 3/4 sticks this time. Add four more heaping tablespoons of cocoa and stir together.

Milk

Then add 6 Tablespoons milk and one teaspoon vanilla. Here’s the only thing I did differently. I didn’t have any milk. I know… that bites. So instead I used four tablespoons of evaporated milk mixed with two tablespoons of water. I could have gone all six evaporated, but I wanted to play it safe.

Powdered Sugar

Add ONE POUND of confectioner’s sugar. Thank you again PW. This is definitely going in the right direction.

Yum

Mix that all up really, really good. You can also add a 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, but I didn’t have any of those either. And actually, I’m glad I didn’t. This cake was just the way I like it. Non-crunchy.

Pour it on

After the cake is baked , immediately pour on the good stuff. Work the icing all over the cake, so you’ll have less spreading to do. Those little lumps in the photo are just bits of confectioner’s sugar. If you don’t add nuts, you’ll have to stir this really good to get them all out or sift your sugar first. But who has time for that when this cake is waiting.

Scoopable.

Let the cake cool completely. Just kidding. Just dig right in.

It was the…

For me

Wait… I need another bite to make sure.

It was the…

Sheet Cake

Best chocolate sheet cake ever.

By the way, this 12 X 18 cake taking up space on the counter? Don’t even think twice about it. The cake won’t last that long.

Man, I really wish I had some milk right now.

Chocolate Sheet Cake

The cake was so good, that I had to take a picture of it on this pedestal. Right where it belongs.

Bitten

Make this cake. Now. Seriously.

Here is the full recipe from the Pioneer Woman to make things easier for you to follow.

Or you could go out and get a copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks. However, I’m changing the title to The Pioneer Woman Bakes because she has no less than fifteen sweet recipes included in this thing. You might also like:

  • Cinnamon Rolls
  • Iny’s Prune Cake
  • Buttermilk Biscuits
  • Marmalade Muffins
  • French Breakfast Puffs
  • Maple Pecan Scones
  • Perfect Pie Crust
  • Patsy’s Blackberry Cobbler
  • Flat Apple Pie
  • Chocolate Sheet Cake
  • Mocha Brownies
  • Oatmeal Crispies
  • Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
  • Peach Crisp with Maple Cream Sauce
  • Red Velvet Cake
  • Plus … there’s all the real food

Here’s a peek inside.

But you don’t need to peek, because… guess what… I went to the store the same day this book was released and bought another copy to share.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks

That’s right. One for me and one for you. Well, one of you.

I made her “no knead dinner rolls” and they were wonderful! I wish I had found her website before I had a baby…because then I would have had much more time to try her recipes! Nonetheless, if I win the cookbook, I’ll find some time to try ‘em out!

I have tried a lot of her recipes…some I have adapted…some I followed….the latest one that I loved is the Stuffed Mushrooms! I shared with a lot of people, and everyone loved them.

This chocolate cake reminds me of something Granny would make and take to church. I will try it next.

Love the “hot crash potatoes” – don’t know if they are in the book, but from her website. So simple and so good.

The mac and cheese (where you make the white sauce base) is fabulous too. Old fashioned taste but with creamy texture.

Okay, so I must be honest that chocolate cakes are not my favourite, but that does look good.
I also want to let you know that I made 2 of your recipes for our Halloween party this year…the pumpkin bites (I just used real tart shells instead) and the spider web cooies (but I made them cupcakes). They were such a hit.
Thanks for such a great website. LOVE it!!!
Oh, yeah, and PW is awesome, too. Love her stuff :)

I have been reluctant to go visit her site, though I have known about it for some time, because I was afraid…afraid that I would have to try recipies that I would love, and then shelve them because I shouldn’t have them (evil diet crap)…but the cake is calling….I want a copy….I really, really do…Thanks (I think) for the decadent introduction!

Candi said...

I think I’m in the minority here but thanks for introducing me to PW!! I’ve only heard of her one other time and that was on your site when you went to visit her!

I’ve never had any luck with homemade cakes and I’ve actually told myself I just wasn’t going to try them anymore since the boxes from the store are so good and so cheap and so easy. But your pictures have talked me into trying just one more time! So, here goes….you did say go make it now didn’t you?

Oh, and I would LOVE to have her cookbook! What better way to get to know someone by having their cookbook!

I’ve tried her Best Chocolate Sheet Cake recipe…delish! And I’ve also made her Mac ‘n Cheese recipe too. Bakerella and Pioneer Woman are the “tops” on my list of recipe blogs to view.

PW’s Firecracker Shrimp were magically easy (if you can find some frozen shrimp and sriracha sauce, you’re there!) and delicious.

I know – it’s not a baking recipe. I could totally live on sheet cake alone, though. I just try the other recipes for fun.

Found her from your site and I check each of you out daily. I just tried her Sweet Roasted Rosemary Acorn Squash. Had never eaten an acorn squash before but the pictures made it look so good I had to try it. Yummy! There are a lot more of hers I am dying to try. Have also tried several of yours – love the cake pops!

I love PW! I was just thinking what a great gift the book would be.

I’ve been reading Pioneer Woman’s blog for quite a while now. I loved her Pinto Beans recipe – can’t get much easier than that – and they were SO good. Would LOVE to win the cookbook to consolidate all her recipes that I keep printing.

Every recipe I’ve tried is wonderful. Right now my favorite is the BBQ meatballs!
