Texas Sheet Cake

25 MIN
20 MIN
12 to 16 servings






  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Butter and line a 43 x 30 cm (17 x 12-inch) baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the eggs, cocoa powder and sugar with a whisk. Add the oil. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk. Spread on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.


  1. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the milk, chocolate, cocoa powder, butter and icing sugar to a boil. Boil for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add the pecans.
  2. Spread the hot icing on the cake right out of the oven. Let cool completely.


The Texas Sheet Cake has a soft texture and the main ingredients (chocolate, cocoa powder, pecans) will remind you of brownies.


  1. Yummy...even when I substituted the canola oil (I was all out, and wanted to make this cake for dessert) with melted butter, in the cake batter. Thank-you!
