In my last post I mentioned my Niece just got married and her reception was last Saturday night!! Well with family in town we had a family lunch on Sunday and of course I decided to make a sweet treat!!! I had to make a Texas sheet Cake because there were like 20 of us at this lunch!! So I came up with….Cookies and Cream Texas Sheet Cake!!! It was amazing!!
I am kinda on a Cookies and Cream kick lately so you might see another Cookies and Cream recipe next week!!!!! I started with a basic White Texas Sheet Cake and then added some embellishments!!
For the cake I roughly chopped 8 Oreo cookies and after pouring the batter in the baking sheet I sprinkled the cookies on top. Because this is a thin cake I didn’t want to mix the cookies in the batter and that worked out pretty good!! Now to make it a little more interesting I sprinkled 1/4 of a cup of mini chocolate chips on top too!! You can never have too much chocolate!!
The goodies sprinkled on top sunk down just a little bit into the batter, it was perfect! The cookies and the chocolate chips were about in the middle of the cake after baking! Perfect just perfect!!
Now I have to tell you about the frosting. I wasn’t sure if it would work but let me tell you it did and it was amazing!! I was trying to use up my butter milk so I switched out the regular milk for the butter milk in the cake and the frosting and it was fantastic! The tang of the butter milk in both the cake and the frosting kept the sweet and savory balance just right!!
This cake will not disappoint I promise!!! Have a fantastic weekend!!!
