I am a firm believer that almost all family functions should have a TEXAS SHEET CAKE. So when I saw that chef brad had a recipe for Texas sheet cake, I knew I had to give it a try! This cake turned out really good. It was made with whole grains and tasted almost just the same as a normal sheet cake made with white flour. I promise you will not be disappointed in this recipe…just try it out and when you eat your third slice you won’t feel as bad because it’s made with whole grains!!
Round up your ingredients.
Put the amaranth in your grain mill.
And crank away
Here is the amaranth before and after it has been ground
Bring your buttermilk, butter, & cocoa to a boil. (Buttermilk is a new ingredient that I had never thought to add to my Texas sheet cakes!)
While that is now cooling mix together the sour cream, eggs, and vanilla.
When the cake has about 10 minutes left to bake go ahead and start to make the frosting for it.
Bring to a boil the butter, milk and cocoa
So until next time…
