Recipe by: David

1 cup butter
1 cup water
2 cups flour
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder


1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
4 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Bring to a boil the butter and water. Remove from heat. Add remainder of ingredients and mix well.

Pour the mixture into 15 x 10 pan (a standard baking sheet with an edge).  Bake at 375 for 20-22 minutes.  Cool 20 minutes.

To Make the Frosting:

While the cake is cooking, combine butter and milk in pan. 
Bring it to a boil.  Remove the pan from heat, add sugar and almond extract and mix well.  Stir in walnuts if you are adding them and spread over warm cake, and this part is important. When you add the frosting to the warm cake, it is easy to spread over the top of the cake and it gives the cake a nice smooth look.
