White Texas Sheet Cake

Sharing some 'yummyness' today!

Of course, when I saw 'Texas' I had to check out this recipe. 
I haven't made it yet but it's on my 'to-do' list!

White Texas Sheet Cake

"This cake is good to make a day ahead, and is very popular at potlucks."

       1 cup butter...
       1 cup water
       2 cups all-purpose flour
       2 cups white sugar
       2 eggs
       1/2 cup sour cream
       1 teaspoon almond extract
       1/2 teaspoon salt
       1 teaspoon baking soda
       1/2 cup butter
       1/4 cup milk
       4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
       1/2 teaspoon almond extract
       1 cup chopped walnuts

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, salt, and baking soda until smooth. Pour batter into a greased 10 x 15 x 1 inch baking pan.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 22 minutes, or until cake is golden brown. Cool for 20 minutes.

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.

I can just see myself now,
a large piece of Texas cake and a tall glass of milk,
or a cup of hot coffee!

Until Next Time
