    This is so fabulous, the flavor reminds me of an almond bear claw.

    This cake turned out great. I used 1 1/2 the recipe as I needed to fill a car cake pan and I used a little more almond extract for a little more flavor, thanks for the recipe.

    I think that you are missing one step in your recipe. I boiled the butter with the water...but in your directions it doesn't mention what to do with the butter for the cake. :) Thanks!!!!

    I have now made this cake a couple of times and it is sooo GOOD, will be making it forever. My husband dosen't care for frosting and this cake is just yummy without any, super moist and just sweet enough. The only thing I did different was bake it in a regular cake pan instead of a jelly role pan.

    I love traditional Texas sheet cake and I can't wait to try this!!! It sounds yummy. I like almond flavoring, too.
