Sheet Cake Recipes
Here are some of our readers' favorite Sheet Cake Recipes:
Traditionally, sheet cakes were to feed large family gatherings, church pot
lucks, parties and other celebrations. Often baked in jelly roll pans, usually
15"X10"X1", they make lots of servings, if a bit thin, but
richness makes up for the lack of height. Most can also be baked in a
9"X13" pan if you want thicker squares but you may have to adjust
One of the most famous and popular sheet cakes is the Texas
Sheet Cake, often called just a "Sheath Cake" instead, a rich
chocolate cake with vanilla and touch of cinnamon and a unique frosting that is
like softer fudge and poured onto the warm cake.
You will see many versions, but the "real thing" as I can tell you
as a Native Texan will always be made with buttermilk, have pecans in the
frosting, and will have that touch of cinnamon.
I made this as the groom’s cake at his request for my older daughter’s
wedding. This bakes for 20 minutes at 350F and uses 11 ingredients, plus more
for the cooked
frosting, but don’t be intimidated by that because it isn’t really
difficult, and the taste is worth any effort.
This nice White
Sheet Cake Recipe has a tangy sour cream touch and pecans in the
frosting for more flavor. I’d rather substitute a good Mexican vanilla for the
almond extract with pecans, and use toasted almonds if I kept the original
flavoring. This needs 20-22 minutes at 375 and has nine ingredients.
Finally, blow away a hungry mob with this Giant
Carrot Sheet Cake with the traditional cream cheese frosting. It’s simpler
to make one big flat layer than the traditional stacked carrot cake but still
provide all the flavor. You will use 10 ingredients and bake at 350F for about
Sheet cakes can be good choices for beginning cooks since there is little
hassle, and you don’t even have to remove it from the pan. Most are served
right out of the pan you baked them in and it all goes very quickly. But get
your own slice early, because they get eaten just as fast!
