Texas Sheet Cake

Sometimes the best recipes come from friends and that is where this recipe came from, Dee Anna Crump!  Dee Anna obtained the recipe from her mother, Carol Lawson.

The first time I tasted her Texas Sheet Cake it was heaven on earth!!!  And I knew right then and there that I would have to beg her for the recipe so I could share it with you all.

Thank the heavens above she shared the recipe!!  YAY

  1. You neglected to mention an amount for brown sugar in the ingredients!! Devil is in the details.


    1. Thank you Rick for bringing this to our attention. I have corrected the error. Merry Christmas!!


  2. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several
    emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Thanks a lot!


    1. I sorry your getting bombarded with e-mails. I would think that this would be something that needed to be removed on your end. I would try going and unchecking the “Notify me when new comments are added” box. Hopefully that will solve you problem.
