Bake pound cake in half sheet pan?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
What pan size is your original recipe for? Roughly speaking, for a loaf pan recipe, you will need somewhere between double and triple the recipe.
Also, keep in mind that the sheet pan cake might need a lower temperature and definitely a shorter baking time.

Agree with Angela's comments.
To figure this out, consider:
If your original pound cake fit and 8x4x2.5" pan, that capacity is 6 cups.
If a 9x5x3" loaf pan, that capacity is 8 cups.
Safest to measure your sheet pan volume with water, but I think one 12x18x2 may have 25-30 cup capacity.
So, make a multiple of 3-5x the original recipe.
PS There are cake pan size charts out there, usually a big help in converting recipes, but none I looked at had sheet pans.
