Chocolate!! Life needs chocolate, period. Would I survive without chocolate? Maybe. Would I be an enjoyable person without chocolate in my life? No. Does that make me an emotional eater? Probably, but I’m cool with that. Really though, I love love love chocolate, and I also love love love chocolate cake! It is after all two of the absolute best foods combined into one so of course that makes it one of the most epic things in the world of food, right? Yes, of course that statement is right and it’s not to be argued with :). I don’t understand people who aren’t head over heals crazy about chocolate, like my sister for instance. I can’t even watch her eat chocolate chip cookies because she picks out the chocolate chips…and throws them away! Gimme those I’ll eat em! Yes, we all have different taste buds but I think it’s safe to say this Chocolate Sheet Cake will have everyone swooning!
Why is this chocolate sheet cake any different from all those out there? Because I’ve always doubled the cocoa from that in the classic sheet cake recipe and it makes it 1,000 times better! I mean 1/4 cup cocoa most definitely could not be considered enough for a whole cake! I also chose to finish this one off with some chocolate whipped cream for extra decadence (it tastes like chocolate mousse), but it is optional so if you want to cut back on ingredients feel free to leave it off. Then of course I like to add some fresh strawberries because strawberries and chocolate just go together, plus they add that gorgeous red color. Chances are you already have all of the ingredients to make this chocolate sheet cake (if you don’t have buttermilk just measure out 1/2 cup milk, remove 1 1/2 tsp of it then replace that with 1 1/2 tsp white vinegar or lemon juice. Stir and let it rest 3 minutes), so…you should probably make it right this minute (then share with your neighbors and friends or you’ll be eating the whole thing for days. This cake is addictive)!
