Well it is now safe to say that anytime I need a chocolate cake for any occasion at all, I have officially found the BEST chocolate sheet cake with the BEST fudgey frosting that I have ever ever tasted! That is a huge statement to make because I have tasted my fair share of chocolate cakes and frostings.
The frosting that tops the BEST chocolate sheet cake reminds me of my mom’s brownie frosting that I would lick off the sides of the pan after the brownies were gone because it is that good. And just for a little extra pizzazz and appeal, there is peanut butter sandwiched between the BEST chocolate sheet cake and that frosting.
Yep, while the cake was still warm, I spread a big glob of unadulterated peanut butter over the top. The slight saltiness from the pure peanut butter paired with the sweet, thick chocolate frosting has had me literally salivating just writing about the absolutely perfect combination.
I love having classic go-to recipes in my back pocket for occasions when you realize that you want to make something but you don’t feel like scouring cookbooks or the internet for a recipe. The BEST chocolate sheet cake itself is so ultra moist and dense, almost like a brownie. I would love it with walnuts mixed into the batter too because I love that crunch that nuts give a cake.
Trust me on this one, next time you are making a cake for a special occasion, make the BEST chocolate sheet cake and you will have people asking you to make this cake again and again.
