Cherry Texas Sheet Cake

December 19, 2020Teresa

Well, well, well. Cherry Texas Sheet Cake. Let that sink in. This amazing cake is one of the moistest, most mouthwatering cakes ever! It’s also really easy to toss together. The cake uses only three ingredients. The cream cheese icing uses only a handful more. The combination is sensational to say the least. On top of that, this is truly a Texas-sized cake! 🙂

Our neighbors across the street had a baby the third week of September. I offered to bring them a meal and they gladly accepted. I brought over a Tortellini Marinara, Broccoli Au Gratin, Corn Pudding (one of the first recipes I ever collected), some of our favorite home-baked bread and this scrumptious dessert. They loved everything.

Because this cake makes 48 servings, I gave our neighbors half and stashed the rest of it in the freezer to hand out to other friends. The only thing “difficult” about this recipe is finding the cherry cake mix. Certain Walmarts have them in our area. But as we get closer to the holidays they are a little easier to locate.

Cherry Texas Sheet Cake will have you salivating from the first bite. It’s a delicious dessert to feed a crowd. If you’re a cherry lover, this cake is everything you’ve ever wanted in a dessert. 🙂

    Hi is it possible for you to give a recipe for making the cake from scratch as I can’t find specific cake mixes in the U.K. except for chocolate and vanilla. Thank you.

      Hi, Helen. I would use your vanilla cake mix with the cherry pie filling and eggs. If possible, I would add a little cherry extract to give it a little more pop. You could also add some finely chopped dried cherries if desired. But I think this would still taste pretty good with simply a vanilla cake mix.

    Hi, I am looking at all of your cherry recipes, yum, yum. What other cake mix can you use instead of cherry chip cake mix, I have been looking for this cake mix for a long time with no luck. We love anything cherry flavored. Also, if I use a different cake mix, what can I use to really give it a robust cherry flavor? Thank you for your suggestions. God bless you.

      Hi, Betty. You can start with a white cake mix. I would add a teaspoon of cherry extract, and perhaps a half cup of finely diced dried cherries. That should provide plenty of robust flavor.
