Texas sheet cake is one of the dessert recipes that always comes to mind. My other go-to easy dessert recipes include Chocolate Brownies, Scotcheroos, and Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies.
WHY IS IT CALLED TEXAS SHEET CAKE?
It’s not known why chocolate sheet cake is often referred to as “Texas sheet cake.” I like to think it’s because it’s a cake the size of Texas. 🙂

This chocolate cake recipe is made in a sheet cake pan, which is where it gets the name, “sheet cake.” A sheet cake is any cake that is made in a large rectangular pan known as a sheet pan or jelly roll pan.

This cake. It is absolutely, without a doubt, The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake. Ever. It’s moist beyond imagination, chocolatey and rich like no tomorrow, and 100% of the time, causes moans and groans from anyone who takes a bite. God bless my mother-in-law, who shared the recipe with me when I became engaged to her son.

1 teaspoon baking soda
½ cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Icing (recipe below)

Icing:

½ cup butter
¼ cup cocoa
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons milk

½ teaspoon vanilla
Chopped Pecans (optional)

How to make it :
