White Texas Sheet Cake

First time I've tried this cake. It calls for sour cream, and when I read that I had a feeling it would turn out moist. Between sour cream and buttermilk, it is like the secret ingredient for making baked good come out moist. I got the recipe out of my Taste of Home Baking Book and it is a really easy recipe. It took no time for me prepare the ingredients and the cake only bakes for about 20-22 minutes-depending on you oven's temperature.

This picture came out blurry, but it tastes better than it looks.
I love sheet cakes, because all you have to do is make the batter and spread the frosting.

Sheet cakes are great to make especially if you want to whip up something sweet really quick.

Don't get me wrong though, I love to challenge myself on complicated recipes and others that you have to be detailed about, that's where the fun is.

But sheet cakes still are #1 on my list to do as well. The frosting is made up of powdered sugar, and walnuts were added in them.
Have any of you ever wanted something sweet and wanted to bake up something quick to eat? Tell me, what are some quick homemade treats to bake? and what are your favorite cookbooks? I may go out and find it to buy. My favorite is in the picture above, "The Taste of Home Baking Book." I 'm always, most of the time trying something out of that book, more than the others I have, and believe you me, I have quite a lot.
Peace and Love,
Treasure Ann

Yumm, I haven't made a sheet cake in forever!
I'll have to just look at yours since I'm off sweets for a while!

What a great idea for me to try. To be off sweets for a while, it'll help me loose some of this extra weight I'm carrying. I'm still working on it though. My weakness is sweets. Oh boy, it's really going to be a challenge for me.
