Friday Food & Recipe Linky: Texas Sheet Cake


Some recipes just fit into the comfort food category, and this delicious cake is one of my all-time favorites.

When I was trying to think of the perfect recipe to share this week, I knew I was in the mood for a dessert. I have a pile of recipes I want to try, but there's always the worry that it may not be great or blog worthy. Instead, I decided I wanted something tried and true. It didn't take long to realize that this Texas Sheet Cake was the recipe I wanted to share.

My mom made it frequently when I was growing up and it was always a favorite of mine, my dad's and my brother's. It yields a great cake that cuts and serves well, shaped more like brownies but with a definite lighter cake texture, and without the overpowering chocolate flavor. Enjoy!
