Strawberry Texas Sheet Cake

December 24, 2020Teresa

Okay, so I’ve always loved cake–ever since I was a little girl. My mom made some of the best cakes ever. Strawberry Texas Sheet Cake is absolutely fabulous. This amazing cake bursts with scrumptious strawberry flavor. The cake includes a strawberry cake mix and strawberry pie filling. The cream cheese icing includes cooked, mashed strawberries that sets the cake off wonderfully.

I made this cake back in October for John to take out to the Day Neuro staff when he was in intensive rehab for a stroke. I tried to send them treats weekly to enjoy. This one was very well received and didn’t last long. The cake is moist and delicious but the icing is spectacular. Adding the strawberries takes this recipe over the top.

This sweet dessert is perfect when serving a crowd because it makes 48 servings. It’s also terrific for holidays or company because it’s festive, elegant and oh so drool-worthy. Give it a try and you’ll see what I mean.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: This cake is easier to cut if you refrigerate at least 6-8 hours or overnight.

NOTE: It is not safe to put mashed, fresh strawberries into the icing. The strawberries need to be cooked first to avoid any spoiling or deterioration of the strawberries the longer the dessert is refrigerated.

    Can you cook this cake in a 9 x 13 pan?

      Hi, Crystal. You can but it won’t come out quite the same. You will also have to cook longer. True Texas Sheet Cake is almost like a brownie :). If you can find a cookie sheet, that would be better.

    Can this be made in to cupcakes instead?

      Hi Fatima. Yes, I think you can make it into cupcakes but you’ll have to change the cooking time accordingly.

    Not sure what I did wrong. But the cake didn’t rise and the frosting was extremely runny, so added some cornstarch and more powdered sugar. Even with those things the cake was liked by everyone. Want to try to make again. Any ideas what I did wrong? (It was runny before adding strawberries)

      Hi, Robin. You might have had a bad/old cake mix. If the cake mix didn’t rise, that’s defective leavening in the ingredients. Use a high quality cake mix (perhaps with Covid some boxes have been sitting around awhile). I wouldn’t add cornstarch to the icing, but you can always use extra powdered sugar in the frosting. (I usually end up doing that frequently). Make sure when you cook up the strawberries they are very thick. That’s where you can add extra cornstarch if necessary (maybe you did). You can also use regular icing without adding the strawberry filling and just top with strawberries. But remember that strawberries go bad really quickly. So only do that if you’re going to have the whole sheet cake eaten in a day or so. Hope this helps. This is such a terrific recipe that it’s worth making. 🙂

    Can this be made in a 9 x 13? I just moved and don’t have a larger sheet pan.

    1st of all, your cake looks delish….& my family loves strawberries. So this recipe is one I will be trying out very. soon. One problem though. It would have been helpful to know how many boxes or by lb. of strawberries to purchase. I cant rely on my patch this yr. Not enough rain & my closest shopping area is 20 mi away. So if I dont buy enough the first time, it might not turnout right. I can hardly expect someone to drive 40 mi. round trip, just to get me more strawberries. The box size I buy usually renders me 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cups sliced berries.

    1. Teresa

      Hi Kay. 1/2 cup of strawberries isn’t very much. I think I bought one of the smallest strawberry containers I can purchase here, which is about 2 pints (or 16 ounces). I used the rest for decoration and other recipes. You will not need more than a pint in the box size you are describing. Hope this helps. Enjoy the recipe.
