That looks like the recipe for the half sheet sized sheet pan, right??

The other place this is required to appear is at church dinners!

I make this cake all the time. It's so easy and very good. another thing i do is to put peanut butter out of the jar over the cake while it is still warm. Let it cool and then ice it with the chocolate icing.Happy Flower
