Moist Chocolate Sheet Cake

, , , , , , ,

This chocolate sheet cake is one of the first cakes I made on my own as a child. It always turned out great and tasted really delicious!

Chocolaty, but still not too sweet and really moist. That’s comes from the fruit tea, which is poured over the cake after baking. But don’t worry, it won’t get mushy.

The chocolate glaze is quite soft, so you can cut it very well and it won’t break.

This time I decorated the pieces with strawberries. But you can also use other fruits, sprinkles or nuts.

It is also a great cake for children’s birthday parties. I suggest you leave out the rum so the children can enjoy it too! 🙂
