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.
