Although the flavor of this cake is wonderful, I had some difficulty with this recipe, primarily because I didn't know what size pan to use--I wasn't sure what size a "sheet pan" was therefore my cooking time was way off and the cake came out of the pan in pieces. However, we all ate every last crumb of this cake.
