White Texas Sheet Cake

This white version of a sheet cake is just so nice, and super easy to make for a large group. The cake is moist and topped with an incredible pecan lemon frosting. Pecan brings a different texture, lemon zest gives freshness, and the light almond flavor makes you can’t stop with one piece. Of course, if you want vanilla or any other flavor that’s totally fine. Just don't skip the nuts, you will love it.
