One of my favorite desserts as a child was a Texas Sheet Cake made by a close family friend. She would make it for every church pot luck, and it was my go to dessert. I really regret not getting her recipe, because I’ve tried dozens of version trying to figure out a recipe close to the one she made. It’s a really great recipe for
pot luck dinners or family gatherings because a typical Texas Sheet Cake will feed a crowd. I created this Skillet Texas Sheet Cake recipe to feed a family, because a whole sheet cake is too much for us. I also put a layer of pecans between the cake and frosting, because I firmly believe most desserts can be made better with pecans and ice cream.
