Written by Lyndi. Posted in Recipes

I have been proposed to over this cake, invited to parties just so I will bring it, and my husband and kids beg me to make this cake on a weekly basis...yes, it really is that good! So, I thought I would do the right thing and share this recipe with my friends!IMG_2960
Grammy's White Sheet Cake

1 c. butter

1 c. water

2 c. sugar

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 c. sour cream


1 c. butter

6 Tbl. evaporated milk

4 1/2 c. powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1/8 tsp. salt

strawberries if desired

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Melt butter and water in a large saucepan over medium-low heat until butter is melted.  Remove from heat and stir in the sugar, flour, salt and baking soda.  Stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla.  Stir in the sour cream and mix until blended.  Pour the batter into a well greased 11''x17'' sheet pan.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched or a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove cake from oven and allow to cool slightly while you make the frosting.  Put the butter and milk into a medium saucepan.  Heat until butter is melted and bring to a simmer.  Remove from heat and stir in the powdered sugar, vanilla and a dash of salt.  Whisk until completely smooth.
