White Texas Sheet Cake
|Title:||White Texas Sheet Cake|
Good old chocolate Texas Cake has always been a family favorite for picnics. I haven't tried this one yet, but sounds good.
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup water
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup milk
4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup chopped nuts
In a large saucepan, bring 1 cup butter or margarine and water to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, 1 teaspoon almond extract, and baking soda until smooth. Pour batter into a greased 10 x 15 x 1-inch baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20 to 22 minutes, or until cake is golden brown and tests done. Cool for 20 minutes.
Frosting: Combine 1/2 cup butter or margarine and milk in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Mix in sugar and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Stir in pecans. Spread frosting over warm cake.
Makes 1 - 10 x 15 x 1 inch sheet cake.
