Cream Cheese Sheet Cake

I just finished another cake post update. But, I felt as long as I was on roll, I would get this post updated also. Nothing better than Texas Cream Cheese sheetcakes! 

There's nothing like a "Texas" sheet cake for large family events. It's quick, easy and feeds a lot of people. "Taste of Home" created this sheet cake. It's very moist.  I'm sure that's because of the cream cheese. It's a perfect dessert for a party, picnic, church function and any other large gathering. If you have the chance to make this one, you won't be disappointed.

There are many choices for Texas Sheet Cakes. Be sure to check them out at the bottom of this post!

Cream Cheese Sheet Cake
Ingredients
1 C. plus 2 T. butter, softened
2 pkgs. (3 ounces each) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
2 1/4 C. sugar
6 eggs
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/4 C. cake flour (see note)

Note:
You can use regular flour to make this recipe. Take one cup of all purpose flour, spooned and leveled. Remove two tablespoons, and then add two tablespoons of cornstarch to the all purpose flour. So for this recipe, you would need 2 cups of all purpose flour minus 2 tablespoons of flour for each cup add 2 tablespoons of corn starch to each cup and don't forget to sift.

Frosting:
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Add flour until well blended.
  2. Pour into a greased 15"x10"x1" baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
  3. For Frosting: In a small saucepan, combine sugar and milk; bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover and cook for 3 minutes (do not stir). Stir in butter and chocolate chips until melted. Cool slightly. Stir frosting; spread over top of cake. Yield: 24-30 servings.

Cakes, cakes and more cakes. All kinds, all shapes, all flavors. We have so many choices. I really couldn't pick out one cake that I wouldn't like. This post is about sheet cakes. They do not rise as tall as a regular cake. They are about the height of a brownie. But for being a short cake, they pack a yummy punch. I have a lot of posts on cakes. Well, not a whole lot, but I'm adding as I go. If you would like to see more Cafe' Hoffy cake posts or other recipes or some fun crafts, just click on the "More Recipes" or "More Crafts". You will be redirected to Cafe' Hoffy indexes for both. I have also included a few more posts from Cafe' Hoffy that might peak your interest at the bottom of this post...

I love Pinterest. After spending years purchasing a million magazines, they finally came up with a digital version of a magazine. No more file folders holding all those ideas. No more file folders for all those recipes. Now, everything is in one place...and better yet you can carry all those files with you on your phone, or computer or tablet. Grocery shopping has become so much easier. Oh how many times did I forget something on my grocery list that was essential to a recipe I was making. Now, just click on Pinterest on your phone and viola' the whole recipe is right there.

I also try to incorporate recipes or crafts from Pinterest on my posts. I'm a visual person and I think it helps people when they are checking out your website. I love pictures! If you are interested in seeing more cake recipes, I suggest checking out my "Cake Boards" on Pinterest. Also, check out the "Frosting Board"...you won't be disappointed. Also, I spent the month of January organizing all my boards. Now they are just like my file folders...everything in the right place for easy access.  If you would like to visit my "Other Boards" just click on my picture or the Pinterest logo. You will be redirected to all my boards.
Here are a few "Pins" that relate to my subject, "Sheet Cakes". All the photos have links to each contributor, so just click on them and you will be redirected to each recipe...
