Texas Sheet Cake Recipe

When time is tight and you need to throw something together for a picnic or a potluck or a bake sale, this Texas Sheet Cake Recipe is the perfect crowd pleaser. It’s a large, thin layer of tender chocolate cake slathered with gooey chocolate frosting and sprinkled with toasted nuts. The frosting gets poured onto the cake when they are both still warm. Some say "don’t mess with Texas," but this cake can easily be spiced up by adding a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients or by swapping coffee for the hot water.

Bake Time: 23-35 minutes
