Does this cake turn out well baked in a 9 x 13 pan?

Yes it does; I usually do it in a Bundt pan (my son always asked for "circle cake) and it comes out a little runny in the center (but no complaints!) The recipe is also great for two 8x8's (square) if you want to bake up a quick "welcome" or comfort cake. This is a tried and true recipe!
