It has been said that Lady Bird Johnson was responsible for making this dessert recipe popular. Black & White Texas Sheet Cake is big and full of flavor just like the former first lady's homestate of Texas. 

What You'll Need

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • FROSTING:
  • 1 stick butter
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 1/2 to 3-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 10- x 15-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring the 2 sticks butter and water to a boil. Remove from heat; stir in flour, granulated sugar, eggs, sour cream, salt, baking powder, vanilla, and baking soda until smooth. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
