Sheet cakes are a classic comfort dessert known for their easy prep and crowd-pleasing portions. But sometimes a plain old sheet cake just won’t cut it. Want to up the ante with a new twist on an old classic? Here are five recipes to upgrade your sheet cake to the next level.
When it comes to baking, TikTok account Cloudy Kitchen (@cloudykitchen) does not mess around. And their recipe for tahini sheet cake with chocolate fudge frosting is no exception. A layer of parchment paper neatly folded in the pan serves as the perfect cocoon for the toasted sesame concoction, slathered with chocolate fudge and topped with confetti sprinkles.
TikToker and food blogger Chloe Huang (@its.chloeh) has accumulated more than 500,000 followers for her extensive collection of recipes as well as her foods from film series. Huang’s recipe for Greek yogurt lemon sheet cake is a departure from your average cake mix. The result is a golden-brown fluffy cake with lemon zest and drizzle.
TikToker Adrianna (@acozykitchen) prefers to use an 8×8-inch baking pan for her mini chocolate sheet cake recipe. She uses a mixture of buttermilk, olive oil and coffee to enhance the cake’s chocolate flavor. Top with fudgy chocolate frosting and sprinkles, and the result is a sheet cake so fluffy it’s like biting into a chocolate cloud.
In addition to combining ASMR with a cooking video, TikTok user Jessica’s (@jessicajeannee) sheet pancake recipe is a union between sheet cakes and pancakes. After pouring the pancake batter into a baking tin, she sprinkles on a variety of blueberries, bananas, chocolate chips and raspberries.
TikToker Kelton Mattingly (@keltonskitchen) veganized his grandma’s chocolate sheet cake recipe. Other than the vegan butter and buttermilk substitutions, this cake is as close to Grandma’s special recipe as it can be. Bring on the secondhand nostalgia with each bite!
