White Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake
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. 🙂

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the cake.
Melt butter in saucepan over low to medium heat.
Combine flour and sugar in mixing bowl.
Add flour mixture to melted butter in sauce pan.
The mixture will be thick.
Add half-and-half and white chocolate and stir until well combined. Allow mixture to come to a boil and remove from heat.
Whisk or stir mixture until combined.
Add baking soda to buttermilk or soured milk.
The mixture will fizz and activate. I found it easier to keep the mixture in a bowl since it may overflow.
Add buttermilk mixture, eggs and vanilla to the other cake ingredients and stir well to combine.
Pour cake batter into a greased 12×17″ cookie sheet.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes. (My cake took 30 minutes). Allow cake to cool completely before adding icing.
I used these ingredients for the icing.
Melt chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. Be careful not to put the heat on too high or the white chocolate will scorch.
Add half-and-half and butter and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat.
Add powdered sugar and vanilla.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Spread icing over cooled cake. Place sheet cake in refrigerator so the icing sets up and hardens.
I refrigerated the cake a couple of hours before cutting into serving pieces.
