Texas White Sheet Cake

Needed something for a crowd and of course it had to be quick and easy. Made this cake today for a gathering tomorrow. It only gets better the longer it sits, and it will be gone so fast you'll want to make two of them next time.


1 c butter, cubed
1 c water
2 c flour
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c sour cream
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
Frosting:
1/2 c butter, cubed
1/4 c milk
4 1/2 c confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 c pecans


In a large saucepan, bring butter and water just to a boil. Immediately remove from heat and stir in flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, salt, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla extract - mix until smooth and blended.
Pour into a greased 15"x 10" x 1" baking pan. Bake at 375ยบ for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.

For frosting:
In large saucepan, bring butter and milk just to a boil. Immediately remove from heat and stir in confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract. Stir in pecans and spread over warm cake. Cuts into about 20 squares.
