Southern cooks are onto something with their amazing sheet cakes. They’re so much less fussy than layer cakes – way easier to frost and with no persnickety assembly involved – and yet they taste every bit as delicious. The recipe below includes buttermilk which ensures that the cake is super moist and flavorful.
I like to frost this buttermilk cake with fudge frosting because that’s how my granny always did it, but of course you can substitute any type of buttercream frosting you like. White chocolate buttercream is another favorite. Or go fruity with strawberry, raspberry or peach.
