I also have made this recipe for many years. Our recipe has half butter and half shortening in the cake. It always turns out great. I have baked it in a 9 x13 inch pan when that was what was available and it is still good. I have added cinnamon to the cake or icing for a little different flavor. I have made it without nuts in the icing for people who don't like nuts and have made it half with nuts in the icing and half without ( just pour some icing on half the cake and add nuts to the remaining icing and spread on the other half). I have a friend who makes it with regular milk not buttermilk. It is a very forgiving cake. Since the cake is very moist I have never tried layers. I use the same saucepan for the icing I use for the cake. I have seen this named Sheath Cake, Texas Sheet Cake and 22 minute cake. Happy cooking!
