The last bake: Chocolate Sheet Cake

Chocolate Sheet Cake

The last bit of baking in the old cottage kitchen before the big move? This regular favourite Chocolate Sheet Cake. It’s easy to make with one hand after you’ve badly sprained your wrist falling down the stairs like Someone around here did on Thursday night.

Cue having to drag the Husband away from his prep before Eight Degrees Brewing‘s first brewday and spending until 3.30am in A&E. Still, alls well that ends well. The wrist wasn’t broken and we just had to put back the brewday and moving day a little.

This cake is one that’s easy to scale up so, in the interest of having some to bribe the movers plus a good amount to send to the Little Sister’s 21st, I doubled the mixture. It made enough to fill two Swiss roll tins plus a 23 x 23 cm square tin – plenty to eat, to share and to decorate. Happy Birthday Vera!

    The only reason that there’s no recipe on this page is because I have it over here:
