The Pioneer Woman’s Chocolate Sheet Cake

We feel pretty confident about our chocolate sheet cake; it’s a tried-and-true dessert recipe that we practically know by heart. And when you’re sitting on a great chocolate cake recipe, we generally live by the mantra: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But we do like to enhance and embellish whenever we can. So, we took our favorite and most delicious chocolate cake recipe and decided to add a little something special to make it even more amazing: Baileys liqueur. Yes, this creamy, chocolatey coffee libation is just right for our classic chocolate sheet cake recipe.
