This is really good, and pretty low calorie too so long as you watch the portion sizes.
"Great recipe! My husband was craving a classic sheet cake and this totally delivered.
The instructional part if the recipe omits the 2 cups of sugar listed in the ingredients. I assumed it went with the wet ingredients as is typical, turned out great.
And for what it's worth, I used 1 cup all purpose flour and 1 cup whole wheat and it was great. "

mandamatt1 10 months agoOh my goodness this recipe is amazing. After my husband and I ate the whole thing in 3 days, he asked when I would be making it again. My answer of about 10 days wasn't soon enough for him! I failed to save the recipe and searched for over 30 min to find this exact one bc we LOVED it!

Freegoo 7 years agoHmmm no that is NOT right, in my Big Oven software there are 2 flour ingredients: the 2 tablespoons listed and 2 more cups All Purpose Flour. Not sure why the second one didn't make the posting. The 2 tablespoons flour is for the cake pan dusting to keep the cake from sticking to it. The cake itself gets 2 cups of flour. I'm going to see if there is any way to edit this recipe. Yikes.
nani26 7 years agoI have a question about this recipe. Does it really call for just 2 teaspoons of flour? I find that hard to comprehend. Just wanted to know before I make it.
