Meet the Cook: The biggest compliment I've ever gotten on this cake might have come when I baked it for my son's 11th birthday party last fall. The children were full after eating pizza, veggies and dip, etc. - but each of them asked for seconds! -Dianne Medwid, Dauphin, Manitoba

This is the best, the richest, the fastest, the simplest chocolate sheet cake ever!! It's the same recipe I used for 30 years in Texas known as the Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake. I lost the recipe but now have found it here!

I dare you to give it anything but 5 stars!
