Pat's notes: I got this recipe from my sister-in-law many years ago and adapted it a little to suit my tastes. One of the easiest and quickest cakes to make. A one-bowl kind of recipe. Itís not a fancy cake, itís really rather simple but the flavor is nice and it transports very well to the office, potlucks and picnics -- in the same pan it is made in OR it can be cooled and cut into serving-sized squares and transported that way. Sometimes I sprinkle a handful or more of mini chocolate chips on top of the batter after it has been poured into the jelly-roll pan and then gently put the pan into the oven so the chocolate chips donít sink too far down into the batter -- Mmgood.
