Texas Sheet Cake

Texas Sheet cake is just one of those recipes I think everyone has.....
A few days ago I had to make (3) of these cakes and had stated the fact on Lark's Country Heart Face Book Page Well I had someone ask what a 
Texas Sheet Cake was. So I will try not to assume anymore, that my "everyday" recipes you all have! Because we all know what happens when you assume anything. (ha, ha) 
Texas Sheet cake is a very moist, from scratch made chocolate cake.
It got it's name due to the fact that it is made in a sheet pan instead of a 9x13 pan. And the pieces are to be cut Large. 
*After all everything is bigger in Texas.....right?
 If you do have a Texas Sheet Cake recipe you like, stick with it.
Or  compare it to mine and see if you might want to test this one out.
