Ingredients

  • Sugar- Every great dessert has sugar in it.
  • Flour- You can use all- purpose flour for the best result.
  • Eggs- You should use eggs at room temperature.
  • Baking soda– This will help your ingredients rise in the oven.
  • Pumpkin pie spice– This will give that delicious pumpkin flavor.
  • Sour cream- This will cut through the richness of the dessert.
  • Vanilla extract- You should use pure vanilla for the best flavoring.
  • Milk- You can use whole or 2%.
  • Powdered sugar– This is the best sugar for homemade frosting.
  • Pumpkin puree– Be sure to use the puree and not the pie filling.
  • Cream cheese– You will want to use softened or at room temp.
  • Ground cinnamon– This will be to sprinkle on top.

What Chocolate is Best for Cakes?

There are many varieties of chocolate to use out there. The cocoa is the one used in this Texas Sheet Cake and probably the best for this recipe. However, you can use other chocolate like, dark or add nuts or crisps.

Can I Freeze This for Later?

You can freeze this Texas Sheet Cake. However, it is always best to enjoy it immediately for the best flavor and texture. You can place the cake in an airtight container and it will have a longer shelf life and you can also, of course, put this in the fridge for later use.
