Texas Sheet Cake

My mom made our Easter dessert and decided to make a Texas Sheet Cake, a recipe that was provided by a friend of hers and which made its way into our recipe books.  Let me rephrase that, her coveted recipe binder.  Each of my parents have made binders that my sisters and I will undoubtedly fight over some day (or make copies of) that include a ton of different recipes.  One of which is this Texas Sheet Cake recipe.
