This is really good. I've made chocolate Texas sheet cakes for years so this was a nice change. The almond extract flavor was a little different to my taste but not bad.
This cake was so easy to make, and so moist and delicious! I never seem to have sour cream (or to be able to plan ahead) so I usually substitute full fat yogurt and it is still wonderful. The frosting compliments it well, but it is also good plain with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or as a base for strawberry shortcake. Thanks for a great recipe!
So good! I made it for a baby shower and got lots of compliments. I'll be making this again!
I made this for a friend's birthday. his dad said it was the best cake he had ever eaten! everyone else loved it too. i will make this again (and again!)
I love this recipe, I now use this as a base for anything that I need a cake mix for It is very versatile and makes my Strawberry Cake go from good to AWESEOME! Thanks for posting!
My family loved this especially my teen boys. I sprinkled nuts on half since my daughter does not like them. Very moist!
This was a very good cake. I do think that next time I make it I will either cut back on the almond extract or sub vanilla. Sometimes I find almond extract to be very potent. The texture of the cake was great and the icing was delicious.
My mother is addicted to the chocolate sheet cake but the white is just more awesome. I made it just as directed and it was great. I also changed the extracts like coconut cake and chocolate icing . Orange cake vanilla icing. Today I am trying rootbeer cake and vanilla icing. Thank-you so much from the family where chocolate is the best.
Buttery, almondy heaven! This is a rich cake and just perfect to match with your favorite frosting. I used cream cheese frosting (store bought...I was in a hurry!) and sprinkled that with toasted coconut flakes...YUMMY! The cake is so good! Be sure to make it in a 'sheet cake' pan. It is a dense flat cake...that is what it is supposed to look like. I might...MIGHT try taking to butter amount down a little next time I make this. Thanks for posting this recipe!! (My house smelled like heaven as well!!)
Oh my goodness. This is the BEST cake I have ever made. The flavor was amazing. My guests raved about the wonderful almond flavor and how moist the cake was. Thank you - this will be a recipe I use frequently.
