Simply Sweet | Mamas Famous Sheet Cake

This Valentines looks so different for David and I this year. We’ve traded in expensive dinner/gifts for a simple night in. It’s not at all because today is a Tuesday, it’s because we’ve decided to put our family first. Financially things are totally different. After having Caroline we decided to take a leap of faith for me professionally by working from home as a Graphic Designer. Things are tight, but God provides for our young family!

If you would like to impress the guy in your life without spending like crazy, here is a recipe for my mamas famous chocolate sheet cake. It’s super simple and I could honestly eat the whole thing by myself!



[su_column]2 sticks butter
1 cup water
4 tbs cocoa
2 cups sugar[/su_column]
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat over to 400 degrees, grease a large cookie sheet with sides. In a sauce pan mix butter & cocoa, bring to a boil. Pour into large bowl. In a small bowl mix sugar, flour & salt. Gradually add dry mixture to chocolate, mix well. Blending between additions, add 3 eggs, sour ream & baking soda. Pour into well greased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.



[su_column]1 stick butter
4 tbs cocoa
6 tbs milk[/su_column]
1 lb powder sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
Make frosting approximately 15 minutes before cake is done. Cake should be frosted as so as it is removed from the oven. Melt butter into a saucepan. Add cocoa & milk, heat just until mixture starts to bubble. Remove from heat. Gradually beat in powdered sugar & then vanilla. You can either blend in walnuts now or spread the frosting on the cake and sprinkle them on top afterwards. Let the cake cool, then serve it up.
