Another tactic that I like to use whenever I make this chocolate cake with fudge icing is to make sure there will be plenty of people around my house to enjoy it.

In other words, I don’t want to be alone with this stuff by myself. It truly wouldn’t be a good thing for my hips. But oh boy, my lips sure would love me forever.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Prepare rimmed kitchen sheet pan with nonstick baking spray or by coating with shortening and dusting lightly with flour, being sure to remove all excess flour.
  2. Prepare The Best Chocolate Cake batter as directed and pour into rimmed sheet pan. Use an offset spatula to make sure the batter is distributed evenly. Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cake slightly pulls away from the edges and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the cake. Allow the cake to cool slightly, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. While the cake is cooling, prepare the Fudge Icing recipe as directed. Pour the icing over the top of the cake, making sure to pour over the entire cake and allow it to coat. Only spread with a knife or offset spatula if absolutely needed because it will change the look of the icing on the cake.
  4. Allow the cake and icing to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  5. Cut into individual pieces and serve.

  1. You have me craving for this amazing cake at 2 in the morning!

  2. You had me at chocolate and fudge. 🙂 Looks delicious!

  3. Oh my gosh, my family would go crazy insane for this! It is probably one of our favorite desserts! Looks so good!

  4. OH EM GEE I can’t handle the frosting. Would it be bad to make a double batch, all for one cake?!

  5. Sounds amazing! May have to make this in honor of national chocolate day : )

  6. Just looking at your photos, I am convinced this is addictive!! So delicious!!

  7. Nothing beats a good chocolate cake and I’m convinced this one is probably the best ever!!

  8. This cake looks divine! I need a piece right now!

  9. I made th I cake for my daughter’s birthday and she simply loved it. Actually everyone can’t seem to be getting enough of the cake. I have baked many so called ultimate and best chocolate cakes by far this one tops the list. Thank you and God bless Robyn.

  10. Hi Robyn. I googled chocolate cake recipes yesterday and found yours. I made it with just one slight alteration and entered it in the county fair. I used my own icing recipe. I still don’t know how it tastes because it is sitting at the fair display with a First Prize ribbon on it. Thought I’d share that! Thanks!

  11. Hello Robyn, I’m from the UK. Can you please tell me the size of a sheet pan for this recipe? So looking forward to trying out your recipe.

  12. This looks great. A question: You say use a “rimmed sheet pan.” What size do you mean?

  13. I, too, am wondering what size a “rimmed sheet pan” is? 9 x 13″ or bigger, like a jelly roll pan?

  14. Can i use butter instead of canola oil? If so how much butter can i use

  15. Hi. This cake sound delicious! I am not a baker by any means but want to make my son’s birthday using your recipe! What size cake pan(s) would you suggest for a guest list of 41 people? And also how many times would I have to double/triple the recipe?

    Thanks!!

  16. made the cake and inbetween the layers I made a peanutbutter filing. made of peanutbutter, butter, powdersugar, a dash of vanilla

  17. This says it yields 12 servings. Is that correct? Your recipe for a 9×13 pan says it serves 24. I am making a cake for my son’s (smallish) birthday party and if the 9×13 cake serves 24 then I think that is plenty. I feel like this one maybe would feed 48? Or is it just so good that you eat huge slices? 🙂 I just want to make sure to have enough delicious cake for all of the hungry 7 year olds!

    • Hi Sarah,
      This recipe yields 12 generous size servings. I don’t see the number of people you want to serve, but this cake can be sliced into smaller child sized servings. Thanks!
