Texas Sheet Cake

Texas Sheet Cake made the Michigan way!  With the creamy rich frosting poured over top marshmallow fluff and swirled around with the melting marshmallow.

That’s the way we do it baby……(sing it with me).

No chopped pecans.  We don’t grow those up here.  But we do have a lot of white stuff! Egads!  You Texans want some?  Do you Texans get snow?  Should I google that?

Googling……Texas, snowfall, weather.  Hmmm still not sure.  If you are from the great state of Texas, let me know if you get snow, like lots of snow, not just a dusting.  I’m talking inches or even feet people.

In my opinion…and mind you I’m a pecan lover….this is the best way to make Texas Sheet Cake.

 Yup!  I heart marshmallow fluff!  That heart was a total ko-winky-dink.  I didnt’ even notice until I edited.



Super simple.  Here’s how it goes.  Make your sheet cake.  The recipe is below.



Plop the marshmallow fluff on the cake hot out of the oven.  It will melt and then you can spread it around easily.



Then comes the warm chocolate icing.



Pour that right over the marshmallow.  It’s going to get all floody and look like it wants to run over the edges of your sheet cake pan.  This is no time to panic. Spread it around,  pour more, let is seep in around the edges.  It’s going to be just fine….more than fine actually!



It’s a masterpiece!



Now is that an after school snack er what?!



Because her cookbook is always finger tips away I usually make the chocolate sheet cake from The Pioneer Womans cookbook these days, however I thought I would share the recipe that we always had growing up, made from a recipe in our church cookbook.




Who could refuse a piece of this cake!  Please dont’ tell me if you said “I could”.  I’m not sure my heart could take it!

Did you grow up munching on Texas Sheet Cake?  How did your momma make it? Do you call it Texas Sheet Cake, or maybe Yummolicious Chocolate Cake…or maybe just Chocolate Sheet Cake?

Whatever you call it it’s good chompin’!

Enjoy! Sheila

      • Janey :

        I am waiting for the cake to come out of the oven right now….always smells so wonderful in the house when I bake. My husband is always glad to come home 🙂 . The marshmallow Fluff will be so fun to work with, too. I love the snow, so what we’re getting now is ok. I just don’t want ice. By the way – I LOVE Michigan…..we go to South Haven, Holland, Traverse City, etc. as often as we can. Thanks for sharing your recipes, Shelia!
