White Texas Sheet Cake - The Southern Lady Cooks

 

This recipe for White Texas Sheet Cake is easy and delicious. If you like white cake with a delicious frosting you will love this cake. My family has always loved sheet cakes since they are thinner cakes and it makes a lot, it is perfect for a gathering. If you have followed our site for any amount of time you know we have several sheet cakes.  If you like the regular Texas Sheet Cake, this one is a white version. They are both good!

Ingredients for White Texas Sheet Cake

All-purpose flour

Salt

Baking powder

Baking soda

White granulated sugar

Butter

Sour cream

Almond extract (can use vanilla extract)

Buttermilk (can use regular milk)

Eggs

Frosting Ingredients 

Powdered sugar

Butter

Milk

Almond or vanilla extract

Pecans or walnuts

As you can see this cake isn’t a lot of ingredients and you can make this rather quickly. It also keeps well, I like to just cut it up into squares and it is still good a few days later. I also let this cake cool before I frost it.

Ingredients

  • 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

  • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  • 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.

    This cake looks absolutely yummy! I am hoping you can tell me how to break down the ingredients in order to make in a 8×8 square pan. It’s just my hubby and I and a cake this size would be too much. I can’t wait to make this. Thanks for your help!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I honestly don’t know, but you can more than likely google how to do it.

  2. I made this today for the first time. We love Texas sheet cake and this white cake is to die for!!! New family favorite for sure!5 stars

  3. Do you ice the cake while it is still hot?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      It says in the recipe to let cool and then frost. Enjoy!

      Awesome!! It is delicious!

  6. Lynda Allen says:

    Tell me, please, do you grease/flour the aluminum foil? What about using parchment paper? …thank you!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Lynda, I never grease and flour a baking pan or sheet anymore. I use cooking spray instead. It is much easier and works well. I did not even spray the foil for this cake but you can if you want. I have not tried it with parchment paper but see no reason why you couldn’t use it.
