My goal since I started sharing small batch recipes was to make small batch versions of all my favorite treats so I could still enjoy them as an empty nester without the temptation to eat too much with a full size batch!
You went crazy over my Chocolate Sheet Cake for Two (Texas Sheet Cake) and I know you are going to love this Almond Texas Sheet Cake for Two just as much.

This Almond Sheet cake is the favorite cousin of the Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake. It has a moist, tender cake lightly flavored with almond extract. The frosting is also almond flavored and so good! The cake is quick and easy to make and you can have dessert ready in 30 minutes.
A regular Texas sheet cake serves 24, a lot of cake! This is where it gets it’s name from because we all know everything is bigger in Texas!
This small batch version only makes 4-6 pieces and is the perfect amount of your reduced size group. This cake is totally addictive so being able to make a smaller batch will save your waistline!
