    Weird weather, rained twice and looks like it will again before tonite. Just ucky overcast, what you'd expect from New Orleans during carnival season. LOL

    So I made a gumbo, Thought about making something for desert and I thought about Momma's chocolate cake. I know its a cookie sheet cake, But she was known far and wide for it. You could feed a gathering and its so dang easy. Everytime I see that movie the "Flying Leathernecks", when the old line sarg steals the Marines cake this comes to mind. But That is another story.

    Its really easy, it will feed more than a pork butt, and it perfect for the picnic table. Did I mention is chocolate and delicious?

    Recipe?

    2 sticksbutter

    I am assuming thats a MMmm of appreciation, Thank you

    Its fast, its easy, its really good, and I cut this one into 28 pieces. As a kid I learned how to stack on piece on top of another, and no one ever catches you. Build your own 28 layer piece of cake....LOL

    When a chocolate craving strikes me I could put a big dent in a chocolate cake like that. Perfect!

    OK, But not sure why.....LOL

    This is just good choclate cake without all the hassle. Mom could just spit these things out. Dinner for 100? She'd have cake made in 2 hours....LOL Took longer to plate them than to make them nearly. I have yet to see a single crumb pitched in the trash though.  Like I said, its easy, fast, and amazingly good.
    <Chuckles> I know that feeling, it hit me yesterday! Pop is 90 and I think his taste buds are all worn out, Today he was coughing from eatting too fast....LOL  The cake is good, but we'd never eat it with memories of Mom. It was her thing and everyone apprecaited it.

    Try it some time when you have those kids comming over and tell me there isn't a smile all over the dirty faces.

    Thanks man, its a chocolate fix!

    I make a few pies during the year, at best one or two cakes, I can't remember the last time I cooked cookings (Cooking cookies requires faith), but never any chocolate. This is my yearly chocolate fix. And as good as it is, now I am done wityh chocolate till at least year end.

    What is fun about it, since its easy, requires nothing special, you can turn one of these out and just leave it siting around, so many pieces no one should ever count. But don't expect the kids to eat alot of supper..... LOL

    My Pop will walk by the table and just inhale one so he doesn't even dirty a plate. LOL

    It was always a hit at messy food outtings like BBQ's because its basically finger food.

    Love it Foam!  This is the same recipe Mrs. Red uses, and it's my all time favorite cake!  A big slab of that cake with a tall glass of milk is pretty close to heaven!  [​IMG]

    Thank you Red. Me too! But just every once in a while.

    You know today I met my first person who didn't eat chocolate, and it was a woman! I started to call Guinness to send a reporter.

    I know Red, its not enough to hurt you, just enough to leave a that good taste in your mouth.

    Thats the thing about the cake. I am not a cake eater, I don't much do sweets, unless you include bread pudding or beignets.

    This is my yearly chocolate fix. Its not special, but it is good. And there is plenty to share, take it to work, take it camping, take it fishing, make it for a BBQ, its even stands up to those stuffed full from pulled pork sandwichs!
