Mmmm, Texas Sheet Cake!

Fun story - This is the husband's all time favorite and he has had it for his birthday every year. We got married and I got the recipe from MIL. Three years down the road, three inedible cakes, and I figure out she sabotaged me with recipe.

I finally mastered it, but I still haven't let go of that one :-)

OMG you're killing me! My mom makes a very similar cake and it's my favorite. Love it with a tall glass of cold milk.

Sheet pan? Like a 9 x 13 or a "jelly roll pan" (bigger and more shallow)?
