Alabama Sheet Cake-see Note Re Title Recipe


  • 1 cup(minus 2T) butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa(dark if you can find it)
  • AND 2 squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup water(set to boiling in microwave--CAREFULLY--for when you need it)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2t salt
  • 1t cinnamon
  • 1t cayenne pepper
  • 2t vanilla
  • 1t baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 8oz sour cream
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 semi sweet baking square, chopped
  • about 1/3 cup buttermilk(more or less depending on desired consistency once you start making the frosting)
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped(optional---the only time I leave these out is when I make it for someone who requests no nuts--otherwise, I don't consider it optional. Unfortunately, this cake(in the photo) was made as a request...without nuts :(
  • 1t vanilla
  • About 3 cups powdered sugar(again, more or less as with the buttermilk--but you'll use about 1lb of sugar)
