Simple things can be the best things – like this simple sheet cake recipe that I love. It is so easy, you just need a few things that you might have at home anyway. And just in case: It’s a perfect emergency cake if you totally spaced you’re having people over for coffee in an hour or when just don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen for a cake.
