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!
