When I was a young bride an older lady from Texas used to make this wonderful cake for me and DH. She was a great cook. It has remained a favorite of ours. Soooo good!

this was average. I wasn't that impressed. Maybe I just don't appreciate sheet cakes, I don't know. It was kind of blan, not as choclaty as I thought it would be. The icing I liked though.
