Mmmm! This is so yummy! I love mine cold and a day old! Those Texans truly know how to make a cake. The texture of the cake is brownie like and the frosting is smooth like mousse or silky velvet. Here is my little version of this classic recipe. Enjoy!
Texas Sheet Cake

- 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 Tbsp vinegar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 box (1 pound) confectioners' sugar, sifted (4 1/4 cups sifted)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/s tsp almond extract
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
Frosting: Combine 1/2 cup of butter, 1/4 cup of cocoa, and milk in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Add the confectioners' sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and almond extract - mix well with electric mixer. Pour over the cake and spread. Top with pecans. Enjoy warm or cold.
