Mario Bosquez's Mexican Chocolate Cake

Mario Bosquez, host of "Living Today" on Martha Stewart Living Radio (Sirius channel 112) shares his recipe for Mexican chocolate cake.



Cook's Notes

Addtional notes from Mario: Baking in a ceramic baker is best; serve from the bake pan and, after you ice your cake, encircle the edge of the cake with pecan halves. Also, in my experience, making this cake with butter instead of margarine (frosting included) makes for a more delicious version.

    HI yes, it can be made in a bundt pan however... applying the icing is more challenging since it tends to "flow" more than regular icing. Mario Living Today Martha Stewart Living Radio

    We have been making this cake for years in our family but we call it Texas Sheet Cake or just Texas Cake. It is the most decadent chocolate cake and everyone's favorite for get togethers. It serves a lot of people because it is so rich that the servings need to be small. It can be baked in a 9-by13 inch cake pan also. Add a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream and you are in heaven!
