Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake

This recipe is actually for a quarter sheet cake which can be made in a 13″ x 9″ pan. I made this for my family’s birthday get together in March. Since there are only 6 people eating, this is perfect size! And I couldn’t remember who liked nuts and who didn’t so I only put pecans on half the cake. Everyone said this cake is really good so it looks like it’s a keeper!

Cake Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 2 heaping tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Frosting Ingredients:
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 heaping cups powdered sugar

Some people say it’s called a Texas sheet cake because the original recipe makes such a large cake. I believe what makes it a Texas sheet cake is how rich it is! I’m not really sure but you definitely have to make that icing – it really sets it apart from a regular chocolate cake!

To make this cake, hop over to Dessert for Two to find the directions – I know she will appreciate the visit!

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. I printed it out to make for our Easter gathering. It looks very yummy.

  2. I haven’t had a Texas sheet cake in years! Looks like a good recipe! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I too have seen this recipe and have likely saved it. Now I want some. Chocolate cake with that yummy fudge icing is my favorite! Looks like you nailed it too.

  4. This looks amazing! I love chocolate cake. I’ve always looked at the Texas Sheet Cake Recipes, but haven’t tried one yet.

  5. Looks great and simple enough! Thanks for sharing!

  6. This looks delicious. I love how thoughtful you were to only put the nuts on half. As a non nut eater myself I think that’s so lovely.

  7. Looks delicious! I will have to try out your recipe!

  8. This sounds delicious! I am not usually a chocolate cake fan, but I’m going to have to try this one!

  9. Mother of 3 on said:

    I love that you added nuts to only half.. I am definitely a no nuts person when it comes to my sugary sweet treats. This looks yummy. Pinned.

  10. Texas Sheetcake is my husband’s favorite cake. Texas Sheetcake cookies are good too. I made them for Christmas and posted about them. They’re made from cake mix and literally take 10 minutes to make.

  11. Chocolate and pecans! Yummy! I love a good chocolate cake!

  12. Good-ness, this Texas chocolate cake looks so good. I can almost taste it here in El Paso. I think what I like best…without the privilege of tasting it is how moist it looks. Almost like a chewy brownie. I am afraid to pin the recipe, afraid I will make it and eat it until I can’t get in my jeans any more. But, throwing all caution to the wind, and praying for a little self control, I am pinning anyway.

  13. Yum!!! This looks incredible! Wish I could jump into the picture and grab a slice.
