This recipe for White Texas Sheet Cake is easy and delicious. If you like the regular Texas Sheet Cake, this one is a white version. They are both good!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
1 cup water
2 sticks butter or 1 cup
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract (can use vanilla extract)
1/4 cup buttermilk (can use regular milk)
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Bring water and butter to a boil on the top of the stove, remove and pour into flour mixture. Stir in sour cream, almond extract, buttermilk and eggs in that order with a spoon. Spray or line a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan (this is a regular baking sheet with a lip all the way round it). I usually just line mine with aluminum foil. Bake cake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool and frost with recipe below.
