"This is by far the best chocolate cake recipe I've ever made. I used milk because I didn't have any buttermilk and put the glaze on top as suggested. It's so moist and amazing. I will make this recipe..." See more often. ;)"
"We used to call this Dean's Sheet Cake. Lost the recipe when we remodeled our kitchen! I always add a "glaze" of 1/2 cup butter, 6 Tbs of milk and 4-6 Tbs of cocoa. Melt in pan on stove or microwave..." See more. Add 3 cups powdered sugar. Mix well by hand. As soon as cake is out of oven, poke it all over with a toothpick. Pour the glaze over and it will melt on the cake and dribble down those holes. The top will shine. Cool and cut into bars. This seem to keep forever (if it lasts) when refrigerated. Now my new kitchen is complete. Thanks for sharing."
"I doubled the recipe and baked longer in an 11x15 sheet cake pan. It came out very well - very moist and a good texture. I was skeptical because the batter is very liquidy, but there were no problems...." See more Also added a bit of chocolate extract to the liquid ingredients for more chocolate flavor."
