Pinterest Review: White Texas Sheet Cake

I found this cake on The Girl Who Ate Everything's blog.  She called it a White Texas Sheet Cake. I pinned it and decided I would make it soon.

This weekend  was my perfect opportunity: a dance recital after-party and early Mother's Day celebration. The review: This cake is pretty amazing! Thanks to the almond extract this cake taste like almonds. Everyone at the party last night loved it!

To make this cake:

1 cup butter 

1 cup water
2 cups all-purpose four
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup milk
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium saucepan bring butter and water to a boil. Meanwhile, in a large bowl add flour and sugar and mix. Then add in eggs, sour cream, extract, baking soda and salt. Slowly pour in the boiling butter/water mixture. Stir with a spatula until well combined and smooth.  No need to use an electric mixer. Batter will be very thin.

Pour into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Your cake will be flat and not very tall (it's a sheet cake). Cool for about 10 minutes. You still want your cake a little warm when you add the frosting so that it spreads well.
