Texas Sheet Cake

This was always a quick and easy dessert which the kids would gobble up.  We never get it now cuz it's just Robert and me.  But for Cody's Eagle Scout refreshment, we made 2.  I loved having it again and decided to make a half sheet cake for us when we got home.  Realized that MY recipe wasn't on our blog (when we were at Cara's) so I thought I'd post it now.  Cara used the Pioneer Woman's recipe.  The only difference is Ree uses 1 cup of butter, not half butter and half oil.  You decide.  Either are great.
