Texas Sheet Cake

Jen Sobjack

Introducing the remarkable Texas Sheet Cake, the epitome of simplicity and deliciousness in the realm of chocolate cakes. Prepared effortlessly in a jelly roll pan and adorned with a luscious layer of warm chocolate frosting, it reigns supreme as the easiest chocolate cake to whip up.

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, and salt; set aside.


In a 2-quart saucepan, heat the butter, milk, and cocoa powder over medium-low heat, whisking until the butter is melted and the cocoa powder is well mixed in. 


Remove from heat. Pour over the flour mixture and stir until well mixed.


Add the sour cream, baking soda, vanilla, and eggs; whisk until well blended.


Bake until set


Pour frosting over the hot cake and spread evenly with an offset spatula. Cool completely before cutting, about 1 hour.
