Chocolate Sheet Cake

This chocolate sheet cake is a family favourite and the only chocolate cake recipe I've used for the past 20 years. It's a heavier, fudgy tasting cake that mixes up fast and easy. The baking time is less around 18 minutes til done. Be careful not to over bake. Check for doneness after 15 minutes. I bake in a convection, so it usually bakes a bit faster. For cupcakes, the baking time will be a bit less. About 13 minutes at 325'F. With fudge icing spread on top of the sheet cake, no one can resist the awesome chocolatey taste. And for those who prefer a sweeter icing, I use a buttercream frosting for the cupcakes to make them a bit more decorative.

Ingredients

  • 2 c. white sugar
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 c. margarine
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/3-1/2 c. cocoa powder (depends on how dark your cocoa powder is)
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Instructions

  1. Mix sugar and flour together in a large bowl.
  2. In a microwavable bowl, heat margarine, water, and cocoa powder until melted. Mix well and beat into flour and sugar mixture.
  3. Beat together 3 eggs, milk, and vanilla in a medium-sized bowl. Then stir in baking soda. Add this to flour and sugar mixture and beat well.
  4. Pour mixture into a greased large cookie sheet with high edges. Bake in 325' F oven for 15-18 minutes or until centre is done. Be careful not to over bake it or it will become dry. Cool on rack and ice cake with fudge icing, or your favourite buttercream frosting.
