White Texas Sheet Cake recipe
Often called almond cake, this white Texas sheet cake Recipe is easy to make and bonus: it easily feeds a crowd! The secret ingredient is almond extract which creates a warm, nutty flavor. It’s in both the cake and frosting and is such a light tasting treat!
Our Aunt Mar June is the best baker, just like our Nana, her mom. We spent several 4th of July holidays in Northern Arizona where she and our cousins live. We’d attend the small town parade and enjoy a killer fireworks show. She would often make her yummy peanut butter cookies and top them with Hershey Kisses, so yummy! But her most loved recipe is her white Texas sheet cake recipe, and it’s so easy to make!

What we love about this recipe is the quantity that it provides! We are two of nine children and still get together every Sunday at our Mom and Dad’s home. We have 40 nieces and nephews and when it’s our rotation for dessert, we’re always on the hunk for bulk dessert recipes. This is the one!
The almond frosting is so smooth and creamy, the perfect touch to the buttery cake.

I think your ingredient amts may be wrong.. 1/2 cup of milk for the frosting was way too much!???? Also, sugar amount was not indicated. I used 2 cups.
Hi Cynthia! Fast fingers, you’re correct! We’ve updated it, thanks for catching that! xo
We would call this an Irish Catholic cake! Same reasons.. feeds a crowd. But in Colorado I call it a Colorado Sheet Cake! Anything that brings family together, right! laura
So cute that you call it that, Laura! Love a good recipe that feeds a crowd, coming from a family of 11 😀
