TT: Tome Sheet Cake

Tuesday again, which means it's time for another edition of Tasty Tuesday!

This week's recipe comes to me from my step-mother, who lives in Tome, NM. She calls this recipe her "Tome Sheet Cake."

Sheet Cakes remind me of my Nana and church when I was little. I'ma gonna try this recipe over the weekend--we're finally gonna get some rain, and I'll have to have SOMETHING to do, won't I? :) BTW, thanks for coming by and visiting The Great State of Wisconsin today!
