This is my version of Texas Sheet Cake. I love maple anything and this is wonderful! It tastes like a maple bar!

Wow, this was a definite hit! I was a little worried when I saw how thin the cake batter was before baking, but it baked up just fine. I didn't have a jelly-roll pan, so I just used a regular 9x13" pan instead, but I ended up just using the maximum bake time for the recommended pan size. The icing part turned kinda maple-fudgy once it cooled. I left out the walnuts (for a combination of nut allergies/general dislike/intestinal issues had by various taste-testers), but no one missed them one bit. Very sweet and rich - I cut this into pretty small squares, so I ended up with about 28 servings). This will definitely be in my "work snack rotation" recipe pile. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 07
