White Texas Sheet Cake

As the mother of a child who HATES chocolate, I'm always on the look out for desserts
 that do not include chocolate. I've made Texas sheet cakes (aka Coke cake) for 
years and years but until recently had never made a white Texas sheet cake. 
I have no idea why I waited so long to make this but gosh- it is GOOD! 


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 pan. In a large bowl, whisk the first five ingredients. In a small saucepan, combine butter and water and bring just to a boil- string constantly. Stir into flour mixture. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, sour cream and extract until blended; add to flour mixture, whisking constantly. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake until golden brown (do NOT overbake) and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about18-20 minutes. Cool before frosting. For frosting, combine butter and milk in a large saucepan and bring just to a boil- stirring constantly. Remove from heat; gradually stir in confectioners' sugar and extract. Stir in walnuts. Spread over warm cake.
