WHITE TEXAS SHEET CAKE


 WHITE TEXAS SHEET CAKE


This cake gets better the longer it stays on for a long time, so I try to bake it a day in advance. My mother-in-law introduced me to this deliciously rich sheet cake.

 

Ingredients:

Cake

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup butter cube
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water

Frosting

  • 4-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup butter cubed
  • 1/4 cup milk

 

Instructions:

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the butter and water to a boil. As soon as it starts to boil, take it off the heat and stir in the flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, salt, baking powder, extract and baking soda until smooth.
  2. Pour the batter into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan (cookie sheet with sides). Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.
  3. For the frosting, in a large saucepan, heat the butter and milk just until it comes to a boil. Immediately remove from the heat; stir in confectioners' sugar and extract. Stir in almonds and spread over warm cake. Cool completely. Enjoy your cake!
