Lemon Sheet Cake

Ingredients

2 cups FLOUR

1 teaspoon BAKING SODA

1/2 teaspoon SALT

2 cups SUGAR

2 EGGS

1/2 cup SOUR CREAM

1 cup BUTTER

3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons WATER

2 teaspoons LEMON ZEST

2 Tablespoons FRESH LEMON JUICE

1 Tablespoons LEMON EXTRACT

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 10x15 baking sheet.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and sugar.  Add eggs and sour cream.  Beat on medium until well combined.

In a medium saucepan, heat butter and water until boiling.  Add zest, lemon juice and lemon extract.  Stir and add to flour mixture.  Mix well.

Pour into prepared pan.  Bake for 18-22 minutes until a toothpick tests clean.

Cool completely before frosting with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting.  Serve with fresh berries if desired.  Store covered in refrigerator.

Notes

You could easily make this in a 9x13 pan if that's all you have.  Add 8-10 minutes to the baking time because you will have a thicker cake.
