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!
