White Texas Sheet Cake

by Laura

A little bit ago, I shared a family recipe for Texas Sheet Cake. Shortly after that, I was on allrecipes.com and noticed a recipe for White Texas Sheet Cake. So I thought, since we love the Texas Sheet Cake so much, I had to give this recipe a try.

There are only a few differences between the recipes. The white version obviously has no cocoa and also has no cinnamon. As a result, in place of the vanilla extract you use almond extract. Also, the white version uses sour cream instead of buttermilk. I have to tell you, I was equally happy with the white version. It had a wonderful buttery almond flavor.

My daughter loved it too. This is good since she is unable to eat chocolate. You have to give this version of the Texas Sheet Cake a try.
