Texas Sheet Cake – Grandma’s Favorite Recipe

This Texas Sheet Cake is one of my favorite cakes to make because it is easy, delicious, feeds a lot of people AND reminds me of my Grandma Velda. It being Mother’s Day, I thought I would re-post this old family favorite recipe.

It makes approximately 20, 3 inch servings and is really yummy served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream!

Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t! When I make this chocolate cake up, I only put nuts on half of it. Most likely, there will be someone in the group who does not like nuts. I personally like it both ways. I like anything chocolate!

Yummy Gluten Free Blueberry Crisp

The other day I was going through all my magazine clippings of recipes I want to try. (Do you have a stack of recipes you keep, but never try)? Well in this stack I found A KEEPER!!!!  This Gluten-Free Blueberry Crisp is the best!

I am not even sure where I got this recipe, but I made it last night and it was amazing. It being a “gluten free” and sweetened with only pure maple syrup, I was a little skeptical. My daughter and I both said we prefer this over pie, so yummy!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30-35 minutes 

What I love about this recipe, is that it calls for all the good ingredients that I use all the time and stay stocked up on: coconut oil, almond flour, pure maple syrup and nuts.
 

Ingredients (6 servings)

  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of nutmeg

I really like this brand of almond flour. You can find it at Costco or Amazon.

Instructions

1- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

2- In a small bowl, toss the blueberries with the lemon juice.

3- Divide between six ramekin dishes

4-Leave the remaining juice in the bowl.

5-Using the same bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients until combined.

6-Crumble the mixture over the blueberries.

7-Bake for 30-35 minutes, until bubbly and golden brown.

8-Let cool slightly before serving.

9-Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt, whipped cream or ice cream.

Mix this up with some homemade Greek yogurt and you have a healthy breakfast!

Enjoy!
