SUGAR FREE TEXAS SHEET CAKE

With a presence as large as its namesake state, this humble, easy-to-prepare cake is sugar free! This recipe uses butter and low-fat buttermilk in quantities that give it the right indulgently moist texture and rich flavor, while keeping the serving low calorie. Doesn’t that just make you smile when you’re thinking about a big yummy cake? I know it makes me beyond happy because then that means the small sliver of a piece you were planning on eating can actually be a normal sized piece of cake because it’s a lot less calorie than a regular sugary piece.

This classic Texas Sheet Cake recipe features a homemade chocolate cake layer topped with chocolate frosting and chopped toasted pecans. But the real kicker is that it is also using Xylitol and Erythritol from Lite and Sweet as the sugar replacement. And to make things better, I can promise you that you will still get a big mouthful of the chocolaty goodness that you love with this cake!

Because this recipe is so easy to make and is made in such large amounts, it’s the perfect party dessert. Its large rectangle shape made it an easy decision for me to choose to bake for big family gatherings. It serves a ton of people without being a hassle to make. Plus, you’ll be mom of the year bringing in a gigantic chocolate cake.
