    Oh this sounds so good! I love the fact that you adapted it to a sheet pan, because that's what I prefer, too. Also I usually use butter when I bake...or at least half butter Crisco if I must. This is my kind of recipe! Thanks for sharing. - Linda

    This recipe was sent to me by a friend. I made very few changes. One change I did make was using all butter and not butter and shortening which the original recipe called for. I also changed the cooking temperature to 325 degrees and baked it in a sheet pan. Reason? It makes a 3 layer cake and I don't have 3 cake pans of the same size. But this worked out great.
