I have enjoyed many meals with our family friend Georgia. She is an excellent cook and she is an excellent baker too. I have had this cake many times at her home and love it. I have had several requests for her recipe. It is similar to a Texas Sheet Cake but not the same. I thought about calling Mexican Hot Chocolate Cake because it reminds me of Mexican Hot Chocolate. The cake is very moist and I love the fudgy frosting. As promised, here is the amazing recipe.

Cooking the chocolate sauce on the stove for the cake batter.

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup chocolate baking powder
2 eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 pan. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a saucepan, combine water, oil, butter and chocolate baking powder. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well. Add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and baking soda and mix well. Pour into prepared baking pan and bake 35-40 minutes until cake tester comes out clean.

Check out this fudgy frosting! 😋


1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/3 heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup chocolate baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
While cake is baking in the oven, make frosting. In a saucepan, combine butter, cream, chocolate baking powder and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and add sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth. Spread over hot cake. Cool completely. The frosting will harden on top of the cake as it cools. Enjoy!
