White Almond Cake

White Almond Cake

If you are looking for a bigger cake then you can easily double the ingredients. This is a recipe that is hard to mess up and it tastes great no matter what you put.

* Hint *

The secret ingredient is in the extract…

The Ingredients For The White Almond Cake

1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups water
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 egg whites

Direction Steps To Follow

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

2. Grease and flour an 11×13 inch cake pan.

3. Stir together the white cake mix, flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl until well mixed.

4. Pour in the water, sour cream, vegetable oil, almond and vanilla extracts, and egg whites, and beat with an electric mix on low until all the ingredients are mixed and moistened but some lumps still remain, 4 minutes.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, and bake in the preheated oven until the top is a light golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

6. Allow to cool before frosting.

Wedding Season, Baby Showers and General Holidays which require us to cook endless hours in the kitchen are upon us.

The White Almond Cake is a perfect addition for any occasion and its just as easy as making a regular cake.

You can experiment with other flavors, (maybe Nutella or Peanut Butter) for that desired richness and taste.

If you have ever made this before tell us about it!

If you have a good frosting recipe that would go great with this make sure to tell us what you did.

    So, I’m looking on the ‘net for an 11 x 13″ cake pan. Very few and far between! Where did you find yours?

    How do you get the thin layers?

    Of course the photo doesn’t match. The photo is of a crepe cake, and NOT the cake in the recipe. So frustrating when these things happen on Pinterest, and they seem to happen a lot. Even worse, is when you discover that clicking on the link has resulted in phishing (like this site). Please be careful fellow pinners!

    recipe is not the cake pictured, if you read the instructions with the recipe you will see that. the cake pan can be bought most anywhere even Walmart, it is standard size. The actual picture is an almond crepe cake. Check out recipes on line.

    Yes. That cake is layered. Easy to do. Ignore the chocolate frosting link in the previous comment. I didn’t link to anything. I would fold the following into whipped cream and use it to layer between the thin layers:

    1 1/2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup butter, softened (preferably white butter, if you can find it)
    2 (4-ounce) white chocolate baking bars, melted and cooled (we tested with Ghirardelli)
    1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

    Why does this picture of the cake look like thin layers when the recipe calls for an 11×13″ pan ……

    Those aren’t layers, they’re lines in the frosting

    I want to know where u can buy an 18.25 cake mix these days? I messed up several cakes not realizing cake mixes have been cut 2 oz. most people don’t know that and the cake will not turn out right! I have several favorite recipes that start with a cake mix that I don’t make any more because of this. All I can say is buyer beware!
