How to make it

  • To prepare the cake, bring butter and water to a boil in a small saucepan; remove pan from heat and let it cool while you prepare the remaining cake ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, cream together eggs and sugar.
  • Add sour cream and extract; mix well.
  • Add the dry ingredients alternately with the butter/water mixture, mixing until batter is well blended.
  • Pour batter into 10x15 baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 22 minutes, until cake top is barely golden brown and springs back when touched.
  • Cool cake completely before frosting.
  • To prepare frosting, melt butter in large bowl.
  • Add powdered sugar, half-and-half and extract, mixing with electric mixer until smooth and spreadable (add more liquid if needed).
  • Frost cooled cake.
  • Sprinkle frosting with finely chopped salted peanuts.
  • VARIATIONS: There are so many variations with the topping on this cake, let your imagination inspire you.
  • I have used canned caramel pecan frosting, then drizzled the top with melted German chocolate bar or Hershey’s bar.
  • Frost with Cool Whip or real whipped cream, and top with fresh sliced strawberries or fruit of choice.
  • Frost with your favorite chocolate or caramel (my favorite) or browned butter frosting or any other favorite frosting recipe you make.
  • Top the frosting with coconut – or pineapple chunks and coconut make a good combination, but this tends to get “soggy” if kept overnight, so it’s best only if you are going to eat it all the same day.
  • Top the frosting with crushed toffee bars (or your own homemade toffee, crushed).
  • Add about ½ cup peanut butter to the frosting, then drizzle the top with melted chocolate.
  • Substitute vanilla extract with almond extract in the batter and frosting, then top the frosting with toasted almond slivers.
  • Let me know if you come up with your own idea!

    Hi Krum! I was zipping around the web the other night and found a recipe for a Texas Sheet cake and made it. It was a chocolate cake and came out great. The next day, my son who loves white cake, asked me why I made a chocolate one. So I went to Google.com and typed in "White Sheet Cake" and found your recipe! Surprise! I couldn't believe that I found your recipe on Google and just had to tell you all this. And I couldn't ask for more than this recipe. Its just perfect. We love white cake and peanuts so the recipe is exactly what I was hoping to find on the WEB. I'm going to make this today! I just wish that I had found it before I made that chocolate cake. Next time I want to search for a new recipe, I'm going to check out your site here before surfing the web. And I can't believe that I didn't find this recipe before now. ...Annie
