Egg & Nut Free Old Fashioned Chocolate Sheet Cake

I'm going to be taking a break from my blog for a little as I am days away from having my baby!  I know I will be busy taking care of baby girl and spending time with my family.

I thought I'd leave you with this yummy and classic chocolate sheet cake recipe before I head out. It's the perfect dessert for your summer parties, potlucks and BBQs.  No one will even guess it is egg free!

I'll be back soon!  Enjoy!
