Chocolate Almond Sheet Cake

This is the moistest chocolate cake. I went thru my old recipe box and found a cake that I haven’t made in years. I decided to change it up just a tad and substituted half of the flour for almond flour.

I decided last night to try my hand at macaroons and had a serious epic fail. I knew I had gone a step too far in mixing the macaroons before I had even attempted to pipe them out. I learned a valuable lesson and won’t do that again when I attempt to make them again this week. So I am sure you are wondering what this all has to do with this cake, right? One of the steps in making macaroons is sifting the almond meal and I had about 1/4 cup of almond flour that was too coarse to use in the macaroons still setting on my counter. I hate to waste things especially pricey almond flour, so I added enough almond flour to the cup to make one cup and substituted it for half of the flour. If you don’t have almond flour, 2 cups of all purpose flour will work just great in this recipe.
