Cathy, I've made this cake for many years and when I started my recipe said to use the 11x17" pan (cookie sheet w/sides). The cake was fine, just thinner slices depth wise. I later began using the 9x13 because another version said to. Either is fine.

Anyone know if this would fit in a 11 x 17" pan? That would be 1 inch shorter then stated in the recipe. It's the only size I have!

Depending on who I am serving to depends on the nuts. Some of my family do not want the nuts, so I sprinkle nuts on half of the cake top. For nut lovers, I stir probably a half to three/fourths nuts in batter and still stir nuts into the frosting and/or sprinkle finely chopped nuts over frosting. My hubby and I prefer it with nuts, but it is still delicious without nuts. You cannot go wrong with this quick and easy cake.

Just recently his wife made it for their 16 year old son and friends over playing basketball.
