So this month, I Pintertested the Pioneer Woman's Chocolate Sheet Cake.
Technically, not a pin.
But technically, it's been a crazy week.
And technically, I Pintertested these for my Olympics party, but forgot to take photos.
(They were super easy to make, and everyone seemed to enjoy them).
It was a crazy busy weekend, and I got home at midnight the night before.
Thankfully, I picked a recipe I could make quickly and easily ahead of time.
And that would transport well.
Enter, the Pioneer Woman's Sheet Cake.
Also, enter 5am.
But was so, so worth it.
Lots, and lots, and lots of coffee.
Sprinkle in the cocoa to the batter.
Sprinkle it into your mug too.
But don't grab a spoon to stir because it's only 5:30am and you are SO tired.
Just drink it.
Also, ignore the yellow lighting.
Because the sun isn't up yet, and it hurts to turn on any brighter lights.
A LOT of butter.
Here is the best part.
Sheet cake cooks in 20 minutes.
Which means by the time you whip up the super delicious icing, the cake is READY.
Half hour and BOOM.
You have a potluck ready Chocolate Sheet Cake.
5am Sheet Cake.
You also have a kitchen that looks like this.
For two whole days.
That pot did not get washed for over 48 hours.
It didn't move from the stove top at all until last night.
This might be the messiest kitchen I have ever had (maybe).
And the longest it stayed that way.
I had a little anxiety about it the whole time.
So back to the cake.
It survived 8 hours of tempting my coworkers in the breakroom.
A trip across the bay.
And ended up in amazing company on Mel's famous dessert table.
Lucky for me, everyone was super stuffed from all of the delicious food at the party, so I took a good amount of the cake home, and back to the office, where my coworkers were very happy.
I also took a Texas sized piece to my friend Wendy (hi Wendy!),
and an Alaska sized one one to my parents.
There was a LOT of cake to go around.
Which is good.
Because this cake is GOOOOOOOOD.
At least I really, really think so.
I most definitely will be making it again.
Also, rumor has it, this recipe is almost identical to Keri's which can be found here.
Which I actually did pin.
So...legitimate Pintertest complete.
Linking up with Jessica!
