White Texas Sheet Cake Recipe

Our favorite cake recipe - White Texas Sheet Cake. It's so moist and has almond extract making it taste AMAZING! { lilluna.com }

Today I wanted to share with you my CURRENT favorite dessert – White Texas Sheet Cake!

I’m a huge fan of ALMOND EXTRACT, (I put it in most of my desserts even if it doesn’t call for it) and this dessert has it in the cake AND the frosting!

I also tend to like WHITE versions of desserts (vanilla more so than chocolate, that is)….

Blondies vs. Brownies

White Sheetcake vs. Regular Sheetcake

White Chocolate Molten Lava Cake vs. Milk Chocolate Molten Lava Cake
(this is a dessert at Chili’s – if you have not had it, you HAVE to have it!)

Oh yeah, and this dessert has lots of BUTTER, and being a Paula Deen fan, we all know that EVERYTHING tastes better with BUTTER!

Bottom line – I just love this dessert, and I hope you do too. :)

Here is the White Texas Sheet Cake recipe…

    I wanted to try this for a Christmas party we have coming up where we’ll be serving Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake. I couldn’t bare to make it straight vanilla (no almond) so at the last minute I added pomegranate juice to the frosting (almost a cup–made it very runny) then poured it on the hot cake. It soaked in and left the frosting on top perfect. Delicious!!!

    why is it called white chocolate sheet cake? There is no chocolate in it, white or dark.
    (But the cake is still excellent)

      We always referred to it as white chocolate because it’s a white version of chocolate sheet cake. :)

    Sounds awesome! Make chocolate texas sheet cake but never even heard of white texas sheet cake. Just curious how it would be with vanilla extract instead or a combo of both. Not a huge fan of a lot of almond extract

      I think vanilla would be good. I LOVE almond extract so that’s why I’m sure to use it but you could definitely use less and then add vanilla. I think it would still be great!

    Hi, I want to make the White Texas Sheet Cake but don’t have he 15×10 pan. How long should I bake it in a 13×9 pan. It really sounds yummy. I would like to make it today. Maybe I’ll just keep an eye on it till it’s done.

    Janet Barkley :

    Why does the picture show 4 layers of cake when the recipe only mentions pouring the cake batter into ONE pan and no mention of 4 layers?

    This is a totally awesome recipe hands down. Probably my most favourite cake!
    But if I make it I have to make sure that I am having lots of company because it is a lot of cake and I will eat any and all of the leftovers – SO Good!
