A Cake No Partygoer Can Resist
Put out a rich, fudgy sheet cake at your next gathering, and watch how quickly it shrinks from the size of Texas to that of Rhode Island. You can serve it in the same pan you bake it in, and if you've got a fear of icing cakes, you'll love this recipe: It has you pour the frosting over the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven, so it oozes into every nook without you having to wield an offset spatula. You can top it with toasted, chopped nuts, toffee bits or shredded coconut.
