White Texas sheet cake is a fun twist on the traditional chocolate Texas sheet cake. A few simple ingredients come together quickly on the stove for an easy to make cake.
Somewhere in the nether-lands of the internet (probably on Pinterest), I stumbled upon a white Texas sheet cake recipe. I kinda sat there for a minute staring at the title because “white” and “Texas sheet cake” are polar opposites. Texas sheet cake is all about chocolate – a chewy dense layer of chocolate cake topped with a thick, fudge like chocolate frosting. Ther is nothing white about Texas sheet cake.
But I just couldn’t shake the idea of a white Texas sheet cake… what would it taste like without the chocolate? I decided to let the ladies in my Bible study decide when it was my turn to bring a snack. I dug around the internet a bit and actually settled on a recipe and didn’t make any changes. This is exactly how I would have done it if I’d dreamed this up on my own.
So this wasn’t exactly fudgy. I was expecting nice, thick more brownie than cake but instead I got a very pleasant light cake. Figures that when I’m going for fudgy I get perfectly cakey. It was still delicious! It just wasn’t Texas sheet cake to me – more like a white sheet cake. Next time I will double or triple the frosting. I usually double the frosting for a proper Texas sheet cake and I have no idea why I didn’t this time. I think a thicker layer of frosting would have helped me get in the Texas sheet cake mood.
What I loved most about this cake was how easy it is to make! NO MIXER NEEDED! It came together in about 15 minutes flat. Plus, it was a big hit with the Bible study ladies so it’s definitely a keeper.
