White Texas Sheet Cake

1 cup butter or margarine

1 cup water

2 cups flour (sifted-flour can get lumpy because of how this recipe is put together on the stove top).  We usually don't sift, but end up with a few lumps throughout.  Still tasty. 😋

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoons baking soda

2 cups sugar

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon almond extract



In large saucepan bring margarine and water to boil.  Reduce heat, stir in flour, salt, soda, sugar, eggs, sour cream, and almond extract.


Pour into greased jellyroll pan.  Bake at 375 degrees for 20-22 min.


Cool before frosting.

Almond frosting

1/2 cup butter or margarine

1/4 cup milk

4 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. almond extract

1 c. chopped walnuts


Combine butter and milk in a saucepan.  Bring to boil.  Remove from heat and add milk, powdered sugar, extract and nuts.
