Ok, so this ain't exactly a healthy cake, but I post enough healthy recipes to warrant a lip smacking sugary bit of heaven now and then! This one will make you lick the plate clean, then ask for another slice! Thanks go out to my friend Sandi for this recipe, which was a big hit on my last trip home!
Note: Five minutes before this cake has finished baking, start to prepare Texas Sheet Cake Frosting (noted in a separate recipe post).
