Texas Fudge Cake

I'm not certain where this recipe comes from. Texas I guess. We got it from an old neighbor Kris Bell. We find any excuse to make this yummy cake and don't even wait until birthdays or special occasions, although this month we had two requests. Josh turned 11 and Alex turned 7. This can be made in a standard cake pan or a sheet cake pan. We prefer the second.
