This Caramel Apple Texas Sheet Cake Recipe can be called the best for several reasons. It is SO moist and let’s face it, no one wants a dry cake. Well, I don’t.

You can also say it’s the best because of the combined ingredients.

The taste is AWESOME.

I saved my number one reason for last- you can call this the Caramel Apple Texas Cake Recipe because of the icing. Icing is ALWAYS my favorite part of any cake. It hasn’t changed with this one. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

If you need something for your main dish, try checking out my instant pot Mexican stew or instant pot corn chowder. Both of those dishes are so good. My instant pot has been in use A LOT lately.

My friend Gina, at Gina’s Library, has a very good looking low sodium, no crust apple pie recipe. She talks about adding ice cream to it and I can just imagine it. Oh MY! I may have to try this next, how about you?
