      I'd say this recipe was a hit. Moist and not too sweet, but I made it w/o the suggested buttermilk frosting. I also made it gluten free by using my flour blend and adding xanthan gum. Thanks for the great starter recipe :)

      Made this for an early Thanksgiving dinner last week to go with pecan pie bars and pumpkin pie squares. I can't believe my parents have never had these before, but now it will be a go-to recipe for them to take to potlucks. Texas Sheet Cake is such a crowd-pleaser because your brownie lover's love it and your cake lovers love it too! Easy and stays moist and gets better the next day. I tweaked the icing and used 6 T buttermilk, 5 T cocoa, 1/2 c. real butter and 4 c. powdered sugar and vanilla. Would be great with pecans, but left out for those who are not nut-lovers. I am making again today to take to Thanksgiving! Yum!

      Good! Texas Sheet Cake is a thin layer of moist cake topped with fudgy frosting, kind of a cross between a brownie and cake. Quick and easy to fix. Best with pecans in the frosting, but I made one without nuts for my picky children. Most versions I've tried are very sweet, seems like this one may have had less frosting. In any event it was very good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
