    Engrossed's Note:

    This is from "Better Homes and Gardens Complete Book of Baking". There is another BH&G recipe posted but it is different. I haven't made that one but LOVE this one. It's very light & moist. I'd prefer it to brownies or chocolate cake any day. I very strongly recommend that you add the cinnamon. I think that is what makes it so special. This also freezes well, unfrosted. Then thaw several hours at room temperature and frost it.

      O yumminess. I used a 10x15, and though cut the squares as small as I dared, still had less than 60 (this was for a large crowd). I might try more cinnamon next time.

      I was not familiar with a Texas Sheet Cake so wasnt expecting this but was pleasantly surprised by the results, it was like a rich decadent brownie kind of dessert. A+++

      I loved the frosting on this cake because it is darker and thinner than most published on line. Thanks for sharing.
