Little Miss Momma: An Afternoon With Pioneer Woman

An Afternoon With Pioneer Woman

´╗┐Dear Pioneer Woman's Chocolate Sheet Cake,

We cannot be friends.
I do not trust myself alone with you.
I knew you would be good, but I didn't know you would be that good.
But I suppose a recipe that calls for four sticks of butter and a pound of powdered sugar is bound to be life altering.
I will never be able to enjoy a Costco chocolate cake again.
Thanks a lot.

Sincerely,
LMM






No worries, I washed my hands after I licked the bowl clean.


What's that, MORE butter you say...

And a mountain of powdered sugar surrounded by a mote of boiling chocolate...Willy Wonka, eat your heart out.


I suggest immediately filling the bowl with water, as to prevent you from devouring every last drop of cake batter. Maybe throw in some dish soap just to be sure.

Then check on the baby to make sure he isn't standing on the back of the couch. Yep, pants removed, just as I suspected. 


Make these. You won't be sorry.

Getting closer to checking #89 off my life list.
Off to make her Comfort Meatballs and Home Style Mashed Potatoes,
and then hop into a pair of pants with an elastic waistband.

Holy Moly! that looks good!! I am soooo going to make that one! Have you tried her Cherry Cake Pudding? amazing!

Well, I just looked at the deliciousness of it all and my elastic snapped. That little snap of pain should have been enough for me to close your blog...oh no...it's just wanting me to run to the kitchen and drag out all the ingredients. :-)

Drooling,
Pamela

Dear Chocolate Sheet Cake,

Since Ashley no longer wants to be friends with you, I think we should hang..

I would treat you well.

Xoxo, Heather

I am a follower of the Pioneer Woman. I bought her cookbook. I have done a couple of her receipes. They were delish.

I haven't tried her chocolate sheet cake. It sure looks heavenly.

Continue to have fun with the next one.

LOL! You sound like me. I have no self-control around baked goods! That looks delish!

I have consumed so much butter since I found her site! I recommend her crash potatoes if you feel like something "light!"

Girlfriend, knock it off.

I can't and will not lose this *ahem* baby weight (toddler weight) with posts like these.

Thanks in advance for knocking ..it ..off.

xo ;)

I told you it was pure evil, lol! I made it again this past weekend. I HAD to, it was my baby's first birthday and he loved it too! ;)

I made this on monday for a BBQ and everyone loved it. So yummy! I love her cookbook

 
At June 1, 2011 at 7:55 PM , Blogger Marianne said...

Love the meatballs and mashed potatoes. I have made them both several times. Now I've got to try the cake. Love the cookbook, it is my favorite of all times.

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:12 PM , Blogger Erica @ Acire Adventures said...

I would try the recipe, but I would probably end up altering the scale in the opposite way that I would like to. Looks amazing!

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:25 PM , Blogger ilene @ muchloveilly said...

oh.em.gee. that looks INSANELY good!!!! can i come over and have a slice?!

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:51 PM , Blogger Natalia Lynn said...

This looks incredible. I need to make this now. And I need that cookbook!

Gosh Ashley, now look at what you've done...I cannot get this out of my head and I'm craving chocolate like crazy! haha Thanks for sharing the recipe though. A-mazing!

I seriously would leave my hubby for the Pioneer Woman! Ok, maybe for just a day!! I love her and this cake!! OH MY HEAVENS!! I JUST made one too! Not this one but another one!! See! http://alililly.blogspot.com/2011/05/i-made-pioneer-womans-pig-cake.html

I ask my mom for chocolate sheet cake every year for my birthday; it's my favorite ever cake. Plus, it's a sheet cake so you can eat a lot of it without feeling guilty. Right?

 
At June 2, 2011 at 5:40 AM , Blogger Casey Martinez said...

omg that cake def. looks deadly delicious!!! Yum!

 
At June 2, 2011 at 6:41 AM , Blogger Alison@Mama Wants This said...

Oh my. Is it wrong that I really want to lick my screen?

 
At June 2, 2011 at 6:50 AM , Blogger Joy said...

I love this cake! I've been making it for years. As matter of fact, when I first got married, it was one of the only things I knew how to bake from "scratch"! Now, my daughter requests it as her birthday cake every year and it's so easy to take to outings!

 
At June 2, 2011 at 8:09 AM , Blogger Laura said...

I LOVE this cake (and I'm not a real chocolate person). Whenever I make these, I always have leftovers so I cut them into squares, wrap them individually w/plastic wrap then put them in a freezer bag and into the freezer. Then I can eat one at a time and feel less guilty and I don't feel like I waisted a whole sheet cake when I get mad at myself for eating half the pan and throw it away.

Ashley! I am warning you...the comfort meatballs will change your life. They take forever to cook and they are so worth it! You will never want another meatball again...I'm not joking!!!!

Ohhh my goodness these look so incredibly good! I must try them! Thanks for sharing :-)

What a wonderful life list you linked to! Uh, and I agree with you on every count about that recipe. Even though the one time I was able to sorta justify making it my pan was too shallow and my oven uneven so the frosting ran over the side and all over my kitchen I was still in love with that amazing cake. I couldn't hold an extra 30 minutes of cleanup against a cake that awesome. I love love love that cookbook and gave it as gifts to all my friends. Now they love it too!

 
At June 2, 2011 at 9:01 AM , Blogger Nicole said...

LOL! My sister and I made it twice this week! Once for our dad's birthday party and we LOVED it so much we decided that my 6 month old needed a 1/2 birthday cake. It is seriously life altering!! :)

Sinfully good!

I have made this cake recipe several times. Always amazes me how good it is!!!!

Yum yum yum! Even the dish soap might not have kept me away.

I was just writing up your intro for Lemon Tree, including some links to favorite posts, and saw that your "I have a secret" post was a year ago today! Crazy! Has it been a liberating year for you getting that out in the open and getting so much support from your readers? I hope so! We applaud you for it!

Keep up the good work!!

XO

Ok I remember Bakerella talking about this recipe and now I have been reminded and will be forced to try it. Thank you and no thank you.
Also, W in no pants is hystarical and I totally get it. I hate pants too!

 
At June 2, 2011 at 9:24 PM , Blogger Amber Hendricks said...

So here is the deal, I now know that ANYTHING that comes from the Pioneer woman will be good, thanks to you Ashley. I have made her salsa almost every week since your post about it and then I just made her enchiladas last night and everyone loved them! Needless to say, I will be making that shortly! :) Thanks for the post that made my mouth water at 10:23 at night.

oh hey, me again, my mind is starting to lose it at this time of night. I was wanting to ask if she has a book? and {if yes} where can I purchase? Thanks!!

 
At June 3, 2011 at 3:59 AM , Blogger Laura said...

I have that cookbook...now I know the reason I put it on the shelf after looking at all the recipes and haven't picked it up since. Darn you! Guess what I'LL be baking later this week? LOL

 
At June 5, 2011 at 6:50 PM , Blogger Angela Negron Fulton said...

Ummmm I made this yesterday for a friend's birthday and I also made a coconut whipped topping and put that on there as well. It was a HIT! I ate two pieces myself.... now it's time to workout! :)
