Texas Turtle Sheet Cake!!!

 

My new favorite dessert that will feed and delight a crowd. This Texas turtle leaf cake is perfect for all chocolate and caramel lovers.

It’s the perfect combination of a brownie and a cake, yet has the most amazing flavor and texture.

It’s honestly my favorite dessert.

The icing is what really attracts me. I usually like my frosting a bit thick, but it’s the perfect thin layer that is so delicious and adds just the perfect amount of sausage to the cake.

I decided to slightly modify the original Texas Sheet Cake recipe and add a little more turtle to it.

There are literally bits of caramel in the batter, and you can’t go wrong with that. This Texas Sheet Cake has been taken to a whole new level, and I think you’ll be happy with it.

It definitely feeds a crowd, so it’s perfect for barbecues, potlucks, family reunions, family reunions, or just yourself (no judgment here).
