robynne's southern cake request... 11-13-2008

Robynne requested a very southern chocolate cake for her birthday.

Chocolate Sheet Cake with Pecans.

My mom has been making this for years and it is a favorite amongst a lot of us. I did some minor tweaking to the original recipe and drizzled some extra chocolate on top for some EXTRA pizazz! Robynne has plenty of pizazz, so should her cake!
At work we had some employees that are not exactly from the south (I will not embarrass them and list who and where where!) and they could not believe the richness this cake had. One of them kept referring to this as brownies. BIG GASP... no no no my northern friends. Robynne kept correcting them. They even tried it with some ice cream, hopefully they used Blue Bell, I cannot even imagine another brand of vanilla unless it is homemade. ....OK, back to the subject at hand! It was delicious and needless to say, they were very impressed!

Sounds delicious! I think I found a recipe you should try and let me taste test. By the way thinking this blog is worth the fav list.
