They say "everything in Texas is bigger than life," and that goes for our easy recipe for Texas Sheet Cake! This crowd-sized sheet cake will delight chocolate lovers, and definitely take the cake!

What You'll Need:
  • CAKE
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, divided
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • FROSTING
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 (16-ounce) box confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a small saucepan, combine 2 sticks butter, water, and 1/4 cup cocoa powder; cook over low heat until butter is melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and pour into a large heat-resistant bowl to cool. Add flour, granulated sugar, eggs, sour cream, baking soda and salt; beat until well combined then pour into a 10- x 15-inch rimmed baking sheet.
     
  3. Bake 25 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean; set aside to cool.
     
  4. In a small saucepan, make frosting by melting the 1/4 cup butter with milk and the remaining cocoa powder over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in confectioners’ sugar and vanilla; mix well then frost cooled cake.
Note
  • If you want to fancy this up a bit, sprinkle the frosting with crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, broken-up pieces of your favorite chocolate candy bar, or Texas-sized whole shelled walnuts!
     
  • And if you're feeding a crowd, you may also want to bake up a batch of our popular Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
     
  • Not feeling this chocolate version? Don't worry—we've got a white cake version too with our White Texas Sheet Cake.
