Sheet Cakes

Easy Desserts to Make and Take

By

Typically, sheet cakes are baked in a 9x13 pan. Most of the cakes I bake are taken and eaten somewhere else, so sheet cakes fit the bill perfectly. I especially like them when the people eating it are cutting their own pieces.

You can take any recipe for a 2-layer cake and make a single 9x13 cake layer. Typically, they cook in a moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 30 to 35 minutes or at a lower temperature (325 degrees F.) for up to 45 minutes. It all depends on the denseness of you batter.
