Hey everyone! So happy to be here today to share another awesome tried and true recipe with you. One of our very favorite things our wonderful Mom makes is this Best Ever Chocolate Sheet Cake. It’s a family favorite, and we even have a white Texas Sheet Cake version as well. Both are simple, make a ton, and everyone loves them. We’ve made each countless times, especially because one batch can feed the entire family (including all the young cousins!)
When my mom saw a recipe to make Sheet Cake bites, we knew we had to give it a try. We ended up trying them for my nieces Sweet 16 Party and, as expected, they were devoured in minutes. We were sure to save a few for ourselves to sample, and we were so glad we did because they were so good!! Whether you are making them for parties, family gatherings or barbecues, these chocolate-y bites are sure to be hit. Now we just have to figure out how to make the white version in these bite-sized pieces!! 😉
We hope you enjoy this treat as much as we did. Here is the printable recipe…
Sheet Cake Bites Recipe
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup water
- 5 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup buttermilk (see tip in body of post)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 6 tbsp buttermilk (milk works fine too)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 5 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 lb powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup walnuts chopped
In a large bowl, mix sugar, flour, and salt, set aside. In a saucepan, bring water, cocoa powder, and butter to a boil. Remove from heat and pour over dry ingredients, lightly mixing together. Add milk and eggs and blend well.(batter will be thin)
Place 1 tablespoon of batter in the cups of a heavily greased mini muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until baked through. Let cool before gently removing muffins to a wire rack to completely cool.
Heat milk, butter and cocoa in a medium saucepan until bubbly. Mix in sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in nuts until incorporated. Carefully spoon about a tablespoon of frosting over the top of each muffin bite. Let set before eating.
