@ECBG   Thanks!  I'm going to try that.

 

It's close to the Texas Sheet Cake recipe I was given when I got married!  That was made in a bigger pan, hence the Texas name I guess!  

 

I hadn't thought about that in a long time.

@Sooner So sorry about the uneven lines my Dear.  After I posted from my cell, the first numeral in all the measurements were cut off!!!

I had to back in and move them since DH takes the computer from 9pm until bed.

 

Anyway, I wouldn't EVEN miss devil's food if I could just have this one.  It will go home with DS, but I'll get two pieces first!!!!!Smiley Happy

 

Please let me know if you like it.Smiley Happy

@vabreeze  I JUST EDITED THIS:  I think it's 2 sticks butter. . . but better to let her weigh in (pun intended) than me!  Woman Happy  But I'll 2 sticks go in the cake and 1/2 stick in the icing? 

 

My first post here was wrong.  I looked at a recipe online close to my recipe!  LOL!!!

@Sooner SO sorry!  I hate typing long things on my cell.  It "corrected" the measurement of butter.

 

The measurement of butter should be ONE stick of butter!  Smiley Happy

@ECBG GLAD you answered!   I can't find my recipe for a cake like that so I'm excited about this!
