White Almond Wedding Cake


A wonderful white wedding cake recipe. The secret ingredient of sour cream makes this cake so moist, dense, and delicious. I use this recipe for my kids' birthdays, but it's a favorite for wedding cakes, too. This recipe can easily be doubled.

1 11x13-inch cake


  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package white cake mix

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ⅓ cups water

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 4 egg whites


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour an 11x13-inch cake pan.

  2. Stir together white cake mix, flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl until well mixed. Pour in water, sour cream, oil, almond extract, vanilla, and egg whites; beat with an electric mix on low until all the ingredients are mixed and moistened but some lumps still remain, about 4 minutes.

  3. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.

  4. 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. Allow to cool before frosting.
