Texas Sheet Cake with Brown Sugar Buttermilk Icing.


This is what I baked this weekend. It has nothing to do with leftovers.

I halved a Texas Sheet Cake recipe (from Chocolate by Nick Malgieri) and baked it in 2 (7") rounds.

Icing: Brown Sugar Buttermilk.

I've never tried a boiled buttermilk icing before. If you can get past the fact that it separates, you're in for a treat. The icing is silky-light & tastes subtly of pralines.

Note: whip the icing in a stand mixer until cool, about 10 minutes.
