White Texas Sheet Cake

Texas Sheet Cakes are usually served right from the pan it's baked in. And they tend to serve a large number of people, so they're great to potluck parties. The size of the baking pan is important. Texas Sheet Cakes are supposed to be flat and are baked in a large (usually 10x15-inch) jelly roll pan. So avoid trying to bake it in a smaller cake pan, hoping for a taller cake; it won't turn out well.
