Texas Sheet Cake

Esponjosísima Tarta de Chocolate | Texas Sheet Cake

I guess you have already noticed that I’m kind of a chocolate addict. So here I am again with a chocolate dessert. But don’t be afraid of the colour because it’s not strong at all and it just has some cocoa powder.

This cake is typical from Texas and receives the name of Sheet Cake because it’s baked in a sheet pan, one of the most popular baking pans in the USA. But, as I love chocolate so much, I made it thicker than a sheet.

It’s so moist and spongy that it’s like a cloud and with the chocolate frosting on top is irresistible.

I use baking soda instead of baking powder since I have found Arm & Hammer Baking Soda in Spain (that’s a big success for me as I loved this baking soda back in California). I also use Buttermilk but for those who can’t find it you can mix the juice of half a lemon with milk until you get the right amount.
