Cherry Texas Sheet Cake
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. 🙂
