Sometimes you need a recipe that is sweet and simple, and sheet cakes fit the bill perfectly.
These delights are some of our favorites, and here at Southern Living we love how easy it is to put one together. If you want to try some of the sunny tastes of the South, you flat-out can't beat a Sweet Tea-and-Lemonade Cake, or Mississippi Mud Cake. For the mud cake you'll blend pecans, cocoa, and powdered sugar into one of the richest desserts you've ever eaten. For something a little lighter, but no less sweet, you'll love a Heavenly Angel Food Cake.
Or, if you want the sweet taste of seasonal fruit, try a Fresh Apple Cake packed with thin slices of apple and toped with your choice of great frostings: Browned Butter Frosting, Cream Cheese Frosting, or Dark Chocolate Frosting all work wonderfully. For the plain truth on great cakes, you also can't beat a Texas Sheet Cake, which is one of the most versatile cakes you will ever make. You can add in everything from pecans to toffee, so this can be a great choice for any occasion. Plan on a sheet cake and lay on the goodness.
