Here's a spin on the beloved chocolate Texas Sheet Cake. To serve as large triangles, cut cake into 5- x 5-inch squares, and then cut squares corner to corner.

How to Make It

Step 1

Beat together first 5 ingredients at low speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes or until blended. Pour batter into a greased 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.

Step 2

Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 2 hours.

Step 3

Prepare Caramel-Pecan Frosting. Pour immediately over cooled cake in pan, and spread quickly to cover cake.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Pillsbury Moist Supreme Premium Classic White Cake Mix.

Holy cow! This was a big hit at our retirement party. So easy & goes perfectly with the caramel-pecan frosting!

This cake was a hit with my bunco group! I love how it is so fluffy and light! The icing made it super! I was wondering how many calories are in the cake by itself. Thanks.

This cake is fantastic ! It's a beautiful cake to make for bridal or baby showers or ladies' luncheons. It's always a raving hit when I make it for party dinners. I love the ease, love the almond flavoring. It's a very easy cake to make and special enough for those nice occasions. Try it ! True, the chocolate sheet cake is also special, but opt out of the norm for a change.

I found this recipe in the July Southern Living Magazine and made the cake for my mother's 87th birthday.. she loved white cake with caramel icing. As it turned out, this was her last birthday celebration, she passed away one month later. Everyone loved the cake and it holds a very dear memory for me...I would definitely make it again..with no changes to the recipe.

This was not my favorite.....just didn't do it for me or for the family. Something tasted funny. I'll stick to the traditional texas (chocolate) sheet cake :)

Got great compliments from this cake! i saw some other pictures online and it looked like sausage and gravy, so i stirred the frosting for a long time until it was a nice tan color, then pressed the pecans onto the frosting after pouring it on cake. made a much better presentation than mixing the nuts into it.
