Moist & Chocolatey Texas (Sheet) Cake

I am in love with this cake! You would typically bake this in a cookie sheet but I had to scramble at the last minute and ended up using a 9x13" pan...I must say, I don't regret it! It was the perfect chocolate cake for our Sunday evening family treat. This cake is so easy to whip up and is moist, just the right amount of chocolatey, and is sure to satisfy everyone's taste-buds & tummies!
