Hershey Sheet Cake

Bea L.


This is my cousin, Lorraine's, recipe. She made this years ago when my husband, son & I were visiting and I asked for the recipe. I think of her every single time I make this cake! It is so good and moist. Oh, and it's really good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (Bryers is our favorite) on top.
