Texas Sheetcake is one of my favorite chocolates.  Chocolate itself isn’t one of my favorite flavors (I’m a pure vanilla girl), but when I want chocolate I want a dense, chewy, chocolaty chocolate!  And this has got to be the gold medal, the big bang, the greatest chocolate love affair.  I’ve been making this for years, and it’s a crowd-pleaser.  The recipe was given to me many years ago by the mother of a friend-turned-family member-turned friend.   So I want to thank the late Mary Catherine for this deliciousness!  I recently had a friend from Texas, who is a former Navy Seal, ask me why it’s called Texas Sheetcake.  I don’t have a clue.  But I always make it for him when he visits because it’s one of his favorites.  He says he has never tasted anything like it in Texas.  What can I say, Maryland is dubbed Small America, so I guess that means we can do everything, maybe even better…

Here’s Maryland’s Texas Sheetcake . . . When you make it, and love it, feel free to call it Nebraska’s/Florida’s/New York’s (or wherever you are) Texas Sheetcake!
