Amy's Gluten Free Vanilla Texas Sheet Cake

I have a Facebook friend whose family is following a gluten free diet.  She made this cake recently and shared it with me, so that I can share it with all of you! She said her family thought it was great, and that it was one of the best cakes she had ever eaten!  I like the non-gluten-free version, but can't wait to try this one!

Amy's Gluten Free Vanilla Texas Sheet Cake

Ingredients for Cake:

1 cup butter

1 cup water

2 cups sugar

2 cups + 4 TBSP flour (I love King Arthur's All-purpose Gluten Free Flour)

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup sour cream (I use Daisy Light)

Ingredients for Frosting:

1 cup butter

6 TBSP milk (I use skim--you may use whatever you have on hand)

1 tsp vanilla

4-5 cups powdered sugar (We have a corn allergy and I use homemade powdered sugar)

dash of salt


Put butter and water in a large bowl.  Heat in microwave for 2 minutes.  Stir until all the butter is melted. 
Add sugar, flour, salt, and soda.  Stir with a wire wisk until smooth. 
Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.  Stir in sour cream until all is blended. 
Pour into a 11”x17” baking sheet that has been greased and floured. 
Bake at 375º for 20-25 minutes.  Remove from the oven and make the frosting.

Cook butter and milk for 3-4 minutes in microwave.  Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and a dash of salt.  Beat until smooth. Gently spread on warm cake. Now, pour a glass of milk and take a break. =) Pin It Now!
