Cake Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter cube
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


  • 1/2 cup butter cubed
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped almonds


  • In a large saucepan, bring the butter and water to a boil. As soon as it starts to boil, take it off the heat and stir in the flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, salt, baking powder, extract and baking soda until smooth.
  • Pour the batter into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan (cookie sheet with sides). Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.
  • For the frosting, in a large saucepan, heat the butter and milk just until it comes to a boil. Immediately remove from the heat; stir in confectioners' sugar and extract. Stir in almonds and spread over warm cake. Cool completely.
