This cake is similar to a Texas Sheet Cake with some differences. It is delicious and will cure any chocolate cravings you may have. I don't remember who gave me the recipe but I have had it for many years. It is very easy to put together and makes a beautiful presentation for any celebration. This is perfect for a potluck and your family will love you for serving them something that is so decadent.
