Cooking with coffee - Texas Sheet Cake

When your house is filled with coffee, sometimes it doesn't all get consumed and there is a leftover cup.  Or sometimes you just need and excuse to make another pot.  Either way, cooking with coffee is a great way to deal with these issues.  Thankfully there are lots of recipes out there using coffee in some way. One of my favorites is for Texan Sheet Cake.  Not being from Texas, I have no idea whether this is a traditional dish or if adding coffee to this cake is the "right" way to make it (like the age old debate about...
