This frosted chocolate sheet cake is incredibly delicious and very easy to make. Many of you have asked for sheet cake recipes, here is a really good one.


Texas Sheet Cake

Part 1

  • 1 cup (225 g) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup (60 g) pure unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (225 ml) water

Put the butter in a small saucepan and heat until melted. Add the cocoa powder, vegetable oil and water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 30 seconds, then set aside to cool.


Part 2

  • 1  3/4 cup (400 g) regular sugar
  • 1  3/4 cup (220 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Put the dry ingredients into a bowl; the sugar, flour, baking soda and salt, and stir to combine. In another bowl, mix together the sour cream, eggs and vanilla.


Pour the sour cream/egg mixture into the dry ingredients, followed by the cooled butter/cocoa mixture, and stir until everything is well blended.

You could add 75 grams crushed Daim too, but this is optional.

I use 2 1/2 oz. (75 g) pecans here. Toast them in a 350 ˚F (180 ˚C) oven for 20 minutes. Roughly chop before sprinkling over the frosted cake.


Cut the cake into squares and enjoy this sheet cake Texas style…


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, hugs from me to you.
