White Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake

May 18, 2020Teresa

Have I got a doozy of a recipe for you today! White Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake. Yessiree, this amazing cake is a take-off on my lovely Texas Sheet Cake recipe. This one uses a Ghirardelli white chocolate baking bar instead of regular chocolate. Yes, it’s mouthwatering. Yes, it’s irresistible. Yes, you’ve gotta make it!

I made a couple of sheet cakes for John to take out to his office in February before the nation closed down with Corona Virus. One was an easy Lemon Sheet Cake and the other was this version of Texas Sheet Cake. I cut each Sheet Cake in 48 pieces. Both of those cakes were gone way before noon that day. Everyone raved over them. (They enjoy being spoiled by my treats). 🙂

One of the things I enjoy about this dessert is it’s really terrific for potlucks or when you need to bring a dessert for a crowd. Also, it’s made completely different than most cake recipes. Both the icing and the cake mixture are prepared on top of the stove. It’s based on an old vintage recipe from the 40s and 50s. That’s the way they made cakes back then.

The icing also uses white chocolate along with walnuts. It’s poured over the top of the cake after it cools. I like to keep the cake refrigerated so it cuts more easily, but it really doesn’t need to be refrigerated for a couple of days.

If you need a dandy dessert for your next party, your family and friends will go bananas over this terrific recipe. You just can’t go wrong with chocolate anything. Plus, it’s really a low-maintenance recipe as far as desserts are concerned. It’s great for birthdays, potlucks, family reunions, or just because you love chocolate. Yum. I think I’ll have another slice. 🙂

The mixture will fizz and activate. I found it easier to keep the mixture in a bowl since it may overflow.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Be careful not to use too high of a heat when cooking white chocolate over top of the stove. It will burn or scorch easily.

NOTE: Put the buttermilk or soured milk in a 2 cup container. The mixture expands quite a bit after stirring together. Otherwise, it will overflow the one cup measuring cup.

NOTE: I refrigerated the cake to make it easier to cut into serving pieces.

NOTE: You can thicken the icing up by adding additional powdered sugar. However, you may have to make 1 1/2 batches of the recipe to get it to spread over the entire cake's surface.

    White chocolate Texas sheet cake. Since I am new at baking can this cake be cooked as a Bundt cake? If so any changes in cooking time or anything else.
    Thanks for your time.

      Hi, Tommy. I would not recommend it as a bundt cake, but if that’s your only option, here goes: Grease and flour a large bundt pan. Don’t allow the cake batter to come up to more than one inch from the top of the bundt pan. (Put any excess batter in something else). Bake about 45-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. This is very important, otherwise the cake will fall out of the pan in clumps. It may take up to 1 1/2 hours to cook completely. Allow the cake to cool completely before adding icing. I’m not sure this icing will work well on a cake that’s vertical instead of horizontal. It may slide off. You may have to refrigerate the icing before adding it and then refrigerate the cake afterwards to keep the icing on the cake and not sliding down to the bottom of the serving platter that the cake rests on. Hope that helps. If you have a large cookie sheet that would be a better option.
