Ya know how they say everything's,"Big as all hell and half of Texas," well this cake is!  After a small nibble it is going to be shared by four new families that have recently moved into our neighborhood, thank goodness! 

Maple Nut Sheet Cake

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons maple extract
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
Boil water and butter in a saucepan.  Cream eggs, sugar, and sour cream in mixer or large mixing bowl.  In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients.  Begin alternating the butter/water mixture and dry mixture into the egg/sugar mixture.  Add maple extract and mix well.  Pour into a greased 15 x 10" pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 22 minutes or until cake tests done in the center.  While cake is baking, start the icing.   Boil butter and milk in a small saucepan.  Remove from heat and add sugar and maple extract.  Mix until smooth.  Fold in walnuts.  Pour over cake about 5 minutes after it comes out of the oven.  Spread evenly.  Enjoy warm or cold, cut to 48 bars and serve with lots!
