white texas sheet cake.

White Texas Sheet Cake from Brittany brought by Beckie:

1 cup butter
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
2 cups + 4 T flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream


1 cup butter
6 T evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
4-5 cups powdered sugar
dash of salt
1 cup pecans (optional)
fruit (optional)

Put butter and water in a large bowl. Heat in microwave for 2 minutes. Stir until all the butter is melted. Add sugar, flour, salt and soda. Stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Stir in sour cream until all is blended. Pour into a 11x17 baking sheet that has been greased and floured. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes, until cake springs back when lightly touched or toothpick inserted in center comes clean. Remove from the oven and make the frosting. 

Cook butter and milk for 3-4 minutes in microwave. Add powdered sugar, vanilla and a dash of salt. Beat until smooth. Add nuts and gently spread on warm cake.

Cool and garnish with fruit if desired.
