John’s Birthday Cake

We’ve had a few requests for the recipe for Amanda’s “famous” White Texas Sheet Cake. It’s always a hit (and better if you make it the night before you want to eat it…but my family can’t wait that long).


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

1.  In a large saucepan, bring 1 cup butter or margarine and water to a boil.  Remove from hear, and stir in flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, 1 tsp. almond extract,  salt, and baking soda until smooth.  Pour batter into greased 10 x 15 x 1 inch baking pan.

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

3.  Combine 1/2 cup butter or margarine and milk in a saucepan; bring to a boil.  Remove from heat.  Mix in confectioners’ sugar and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract.  Stir in walnuts.  Spread frosting over warm cake.
