So rich, chocolaty and sinfully delicious… this Texas Sheet Cake has always been a favorite cake of mine growing up (and as an adult!).

My mama has been making this cake since I can remember and it’s always such a treat. One of her old co-workers used to bake this dessert for office potlucks and it was always a hit, so she gave her the recipe 30+ years ago!
So when I asked my mama recently what kind of cake she wanted me to make for her birthday, she said, “chocolate!”. This was the first cake that came to mind since we both haven’t had it in forever… it’s so decadent and that’s a total understatement!
There is a little time involved with preparing this cake but trust me… it’s totally worth it.
Mama has always called this a “Double Chocolate Nut Cake”, but after doing a little research on similar recipes, I discovered it’s more widely known as a Texas Sheet Cake. There are several variations of the recipe and I’m sure they’re all spectacular, but growing up eating this cake I can tell you it’s one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever eaten.
