Bon Appétit (April 2014)
That's what Zach's sister Cassidy texted us last week, after we'd asked what sort of dessert she'd like us to make for her birthday. We were heading out to Annapolis to spend the day with her and her husband; she planned to cook dinner, but we wanted to bring a dessert to help celebrate her special day.
But here's the thing: Food magazines don't really write much about chocolate in their summer issues. July and August -- the issues we're cooking from right now -- are all about summer fruits and popsicles and ice cream.
We were with Cassidy on this one. Sometimes, you just want a big ol' piece of chocolate cake for your birthday.
So we dove into the Bon Appétit archive and found this Salted Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake.
