My family really enjoyed this cake! We all love Texas Sheet Cake so I had to try this recipe to see what the "opposite" cake would be like. The batter is quite thin but bakes to a moist soft cake. The frosting went well with the cake---work quickly because it firms in a short time. I lightly toasted the pecans before adding them to the frosting. The cake itself is a near-match for a tea cake recipe I've been searching for so I will also use this recipe for it and substitute a glaze for the frosting. I will definitely make Alaska Sheet Cake again---thanks Kim!
I made this for a friend who requested it for his birthday cake. I have never heard of it before. It was a huge hit. I had to make a 2nd one for my husband who LOVED it. I left out the pecans because he doesn't care for them. I also baked it for 22 minutes.
This cake did not turn out as I hoped. My friends and I all thought it tasted off but when we gave it to some other people we knew they thought it tasted very moist. Nonetheless I don't think I'll be making this again.
A simple and delicious recipe although it took my cake an extra nearly ten minutes to bake. The icing does set up fairly quickly so must be spread quickly. I put the toasted chopped nuts on the top rather than in the icing and pressed them in slightly. I'll definitely make this again. Next time I'll add a smig of almond extract to the icing.
This was amazing. I'm usually a chocolate girl but this cake may have converted me. Just a few notes: Don't forget to add the baking powder and baking soda - I added it with the flour/salt. The batter is quite liquid-y. I had to bake more than the stated time (about 30 minutes). All in all a tasty dessert that will certainly grace my table again in the near future.
So glad I did a sample of this before using for a big BBQ party. I wanted to use this recipe because it served a lot but it makes such a flat cake that the presentation is seriously lacking. I omitted the almond because I don't like almond extract. I tried to use buttermilk in the frosting/icing and it got all lumpy on me. Really easy to do with good flavor. Would work for a little snack cake but not a party cake.
