I was very disappointed in this cake. I made the mistake of thinking an 8\u2033 skillet was a medium first of all. For the amount of work this cake required I was expecting more chocolate flavor and I would have liked it better if it were sweeter. I did like the icing though.
Hey Susan, I’m so sorry you didn’t love this. I hate when readers aren’t happy. I know all tastes are different, but still bums me out. I’m going to update the recipe to recommend a 10 inch skillet…I so appreciate that feedback and you are totally right that was confusing. Thanks so much for your comments, always appreciated!
I think I’m gonna make this at my parents house on dads bday. He loves chocolate!! And my 7 year old twins would get a kick out of eating out of a pan with pawpaw!! Thanks!!
Awesome! hope you guys love it. What a cute visual :)
Love your recipes, but being in Scotland can’t always get the same ingredients, so have to make substitutions but doesn’t stop me from trying them xx
I’m so glad you still try them Pat!!! Love having you :)
I would love to try this ….can I use dark unsweetened chocolate?
I think that would work great!
This was absolutely delicious!! I made it EXACTLY per the recipe using a 12\u2033 cast iron skillet (it’s all I have). It turned out perfectly – the frosting tastes like old-fashioned cocoa fudge. I transferred the leftovers to a 9×13 baking dish and had some for breakfast. Thanks for a great recipe!
YAY! Makes me so happy to hear that!!!
GOOEY TEXAS SHEET CAKE SKILLET! Top with ice cream and eat with a spoon. HEAVEN!
Okay, okay…I know making Texas Sheet Cake in a Skillet technically makes it NOT Texas Sheet Cake. But I love this idea and I’m sticking to it. This recipe throws every New Years Resolution I even thought about making right out of the window, and I am okay with that. Everything in moderation…right?
I like my Texas Sheet Cake Skillet EXTRA GOOEY so that the only way to eat it is with a spoon. Actually multiple spoons because this dessert is meant to be shared. If you prefer a more rule-driven existence, you can bake it a bit longer until it’s fully cooked and ready to slice. But then that takes the fun out of diving head first into all that chocolate goodness. And let me tell you, it is FUN.
Please no hate mail over busted New Years Resolutions. I blame myself enough for all of us. ENJOY!
