Now who here has not ever tasted the classic Mississippi Mud Cake?
This cake has many alias names;
Texas sheet cake ...
Call it what you want, but please lets just
Eat Cake...

This sheet cake is the best company cake you can make,
 as it feeds a large crowd!
 It is moist yet not too sweet. It always looks very elegant and decadent.
It tastes very buttery and so chocolaty rich.
You can hardly eat just one piece of it.

This cake always brings me very sweet memories;
As my Mother-in-law made this often!
And I made this so many times when the children were younger!

What is a dessert that you make that just floods you,
With sweet memories?

When we bake and prepare something filled with love and history.
We are investing in things that make and bring;
Happy Memories...

  6. Oh, this is definitely a favorite, I do love this cake. My Mom wan't a big "baker" although she was a wonderful cook. I do remember that she loved to make Pecan Sandies, and that was something we all loved; she would only make them at Christmas time; it was a happy memory to me. Have a great weekend Rox,
    Love and Blessings,

  11. Hello again Roxy,
    I've nominated you for the Liebster Award at my blog. I'm not sure if you do awards, so no problem if you are not up to it. I do appreciate your blog! Keep up the great posts.

  12. Now who can go wrong with chocolate?

    I would love a piece... I think you should make some. What a wonderful treat!

    I have certain smells that will trigger some of the best memories of baking with my mom and grandma. I love anything chocolate, but when my grandma would make her special cherry pie, my mouth just starts watering... Happy times, Happy memories...

    Hugs,
    Amy

  14. Roxy, this is the same recipe as what we call chocolate sheet cake. I am not a lover of chocolate cake or ice cream, but this is so moist and yummy that I do like a piece of it now and then! Thanks for sharing the recipe with SYC.
