Texas Sheet Cake Bites - a perfectly chocolicious dessert!

Hi, this is Chrissy from The Taylor House! I have been contributing and collaborating with Jenn from Princess Pinky Girl for years and I am so excited to share my Texas Sheet Cake Bites with you today!

Texas Sheet Cake has always been one of my absolute favorite desserts. It’s a simple chocolate cake with a ganache frosting that’s incredibly moist and delicious.

It’s usually one of my go-to desserts when I’m cooking for a crowd because it can serve so many.

A few weeks ago I had a little get together with some friends and thought it would be fun to turn one of my favorite desserts into a mini bite-sized treat.

It’s always nice to have small desserts and portions for when I get the ladies together. We’re much more likely to have dessert when it’s only one or two bites, right?

These Texas Sheet Cake Bites are one of my favorites but I also love Mini Eclair Bites and Mini S’more Bites! Which do you think your favorite would be?

Cook Time 1 hr 12 mins

Ingredients
  

CAKE

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup water
  • 5 Tablespoons cocoa powder (I use Rodelle)
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs beaten

FROSTING

  • cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup butter
  • 5 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 pound powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 325° F.
  • Prepare mini muffin tins by lining with mini paper liners or spray with non-stick spray.

Prepare the Cake

  • Mix sugar, flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  • Combine butter, water, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan, bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat then pour into dry ingredients.
  • Gently mix together.
  • Fold in buttermilk and eggs. Blend well. The batter will be thin.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, place one scoop of batter in each muffin cup.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

Frosting Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan heat milk, butter and cocoa, over medium heat, until it comes to a boil.
  • Remove from heat then whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth and no lumps remain.
