If you’re looking for an easy and delicious chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, you have come to the right place! This is a mix of all my best chocolate recipes, namely this chocolate bundt and this chocolate layer cake. The only difference is, this is a lot easier to make! And a lot faster too!
What I love about sheet cakes, except for the fact that they are so easy to make, is that they are much more transportable (is that a word?) than your average layer cake. Trust me, over the years I have transported many layer cakes in hot cars and it’s equally stressful every time. Dare I say that I think this looks even more delicious than a chocolate layer cake?
Some notes about this recipe
-Make sure that eggs and sour cream/yoghurt are at room temperature when you start baking
-If you don’t want to use espresso or strong coffee in the cake, hot water works too! As for the espresso in the frosting, you can simply omit it or add en extra tablespoon of cream.
-Make sure that the butter for the frosting is soft when you start making the frosting. I use salted butter for the frosting too but unsalted works just as well. Also use a high quality chocolate for the frosting.
-Store the frosted cake covered in the fridge if not eaten the same day. Make sure to bring it to room temperature again before serving.
And that’s about it! I think I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Scroll down for the recipe.
