Chocolate Picnic Sheet Cake (The Best)

I got this recipe from my mother in law, Alene King.  My grand-daughter came over today and this is the recipe she decided she wanted to make.  This is so moist and perfect.  I paired it with a chocolate ganache frosting and it tasted amazing!!!

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350*. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, sugar, salt, cocoa and baking powder.  Set aside.  In a separate bowl, combine oil, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla.  Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.  Beat for about 2 minutes.  Carefully add 1 cup of boiling water and beat another 2 minutes.  Pour into a greased 10×15″ baking sheet.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  I frosted these with a chocolate ganache.  See here:  https://keepingupwiththekings.com/2019/05/03/chocolate-ganache-frosting/
