The next time a serious chocolate craving hits, this is the recipe you'll want in your back pocket. It's the least fussy cake you can make — the batter mixes up in one bowl, and it bakes in a sheet pan — but it totally delivers on rich, chocolatey goodness you're after. Just make sure you have plenty of cold milk on hand to wash it all down.
By far the best thing about sheet cakes is how simple they are (no layers to contend with!). Even if you don't bake that often, you can feel confident when whipping up a sheet cake. You don't need any fancy equipment or frosting techniques for this recipe — just a mixing bowl, a sheet pan, and a love of chocolate.
Whether you're making this for someone's birthday or just for yourself to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of tea, go ahead and add some sprinkles on top before serving. The author made her own for this cake, but you can just pick up your favorite type at the grocery store. It's the little extra touch that takes this humble cake into celebration mode!
