White Texas Sheet Cake

I brought this to a church potluck and it was a huge hit. Everyone wanted the recipe.

This cake is even better the next day, so make it ahead and cross something off your to-do list.

Even better than the original.  My family loved this cake!

Why do they call it Texas Sheet Cake?   Some people say it may have first shown up in a small town Texas newspaper.   While others claim the name comes from the fact that it is the size of Texas.  Regardless it is a great dessert for a large crowd.
