Texas Sheet Cake in a Cup

So yesterday you got to see how absolutely wonderful the Texas Sheet Cake was that I made. It was so full of chocolate that you thought you’d died and gone to heaven.

In the original recipe, the Pioneer Woman used an 13×18 sheet cake pan. I used a 10×15 jelly roll pan. So since her pan was bigger than mine, I reserved some of the cake batter so that it didn’t overflow the pan when it baked.

I spooned enough batter to fill up half of this coffee mug.

Then I sprinkled a few chocolate chips on top.


Then I put it in the microwave for about 1 minute and 15 seconds.

I spooned a little bit of the frosting on top (while it was hot).


And then I grabbed a spoon for a taste.

And that’s all she wrote.


If that’s not an incentive to use a 10×15 jelly roll pan instead of an 13×18 sheet pan,
than I don’t know what is 😉  Now that’s a cup full of chocolatey goodness!

  1. BRILLIANT – absolutely BRILLIANT!

  2. Interesting responses…. I always make the Texas sheet cake in a jelly roll pan cause that’s how my mom made it (with her not-so-light version). I just assumed that was the “authentic” way, so I’ve never tried the 9 X13.
