Rich and moist chocolate cake filled with chopped walnuts, topped with a creamy vanilla frosting and chopped pecans.
We love cake and we love ice cream. To me you can’t get better than cake and ice cream together at the same time.
What is New York Super Fudge Sheet Cake?
New York Super Fudge Sheet Cake is a cake that is made from the flavors of Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Ice cream. I took the delicious and rich ice cream flavors and combined them to make this sheet cake. I also turned the same flavors into a bundt cake. And, coming out soon on the blog I will have a New York Fudge Cheesecake coming out.
How do I keep my cake moist?
To keep your cake from drying out make sure that you do not over bake your cake. You want to bake your cake just until a toothpick inserted into the center of your cake comes out clean. Overcooking your cake will result in a drier cake. I also do not recommend refrigerating your cake as it does tend to dry it out some.
How do I store my cake?
I always store my cake in a cool place, away from heat sources. So, do not store your cake near your stove or oven. I also do not store my cake in my refrigerator. It’s important to make sure that you keep your cake covered while it is sitting in your kitchen. If you don’t have a covered container to fit your cake I always cover mine with plastic wrap.
Could I use homemade cake mix instead of box mix?
Yes, you can use homemade chocolate cake mix instead of using a box mix. I used box mix for this recipe because it’s easier, and I had them in my pantry. If you want to make your own chocolate cake mix though, you will need flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder or soda. Plus, the wet ingredients like I have listed.
