"Texas Sheet Cake is moist, decadent, and ultra fudgy! The key to a fudgy center is pouring the chocolate icing over the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven. Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake is a favorite all over the United States, not just in Texas! There are several strong opinions on the “right way” to make Texas Sheet Cake, but it doesn’t really matter which way you prefer, it’s delicious either way! "
