This was taken from a Taste of Home cookbook, but with my Mom being from Texas, I had to try it. Now it is one of my favorite cakes.

I have a question. Do you really pour the dry ingredients and the eggs into the saucepan WITH the water and butter in it or do you pour the boiled water/butter over the other ingredients in a separate bowl?

OMGosh this is so good I have to hide it from myself ! I have made this cake twice and everyone, truly everyone who tastes requests recipe. Because of almond extract I used sliced almonds instead of walnuts. I also let it set a day before serving, I think it gets better with age. Thanks for recipe Anita, it is a keeper!
