Hi guys...I used the "wedding cake recipe"...
and it came out extremely dense...

Does anybody have an easy recipe for white or yellow cake that is moist but a little fluffy as well? Thanks so much!

I'm glad that you posted this because every scratch white cake I make either tastes eggy or floury icon_cry.gif I'm looking for a good one too. Usually I just use a doctored white cake mix. It looks like to me in that recipe they forgot to list the milk in the ingredients?? icon_confused.gif Do you think??

Do you think that's it? Does anyone know because I spent a whole lot of time and ingredients on 2 batches of this cake and I don't think I can use it for my cake.

I'm a little freaky right now cause I'm going away with DH Monday and Tuesday......Friday I have this cake due for 40 people. The following Friday I have a cake due for 200 people and 2 days after that I have a cake due for 40 people. Not to mention my sister's birthday tomorrow. I just need a good cake recipe....I so wanted to make them from scratch but if I don't get a killer recipe, I think I'm going to do box cakes with pudding. Any suggestions?

Here are a couple of suggestions...I used the Classic White cake II recipe from this site and thought it was really good.....

Or, you could go with the cake mix and do the following (someone posted this recently on another string):

white cake mix
1 small box of white chocolate pudding
4 egg whites
1 t clear vanilla
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water ( probably could use milk if you want)
1/3 cup oil

Hope this helps...

I really liked that cake, it wasn't too sweet and I used a rasberry filling with white buttercream..
Happy Baking!!

WOW...you are a busy girl!! Yeah...I really think that the milk hasn't been listed in the recipe. You could probably add one cup of milk and I bet that would fixed the dense problem.

Oh my .... Whoever posted this recipe is wonderful!
I am in the process of baking several different white cupcakes so that I can choose the best one for a wedding cake later on. I started with just the plain Duncan Hines French Vanilla (okay), now I am on the recipe listed above with the white choc. pudding. If it tastes half as good cooked as it does off the mixing spoon, this will be the one that I choose. I normally dont like white cake, but this one is great. Is the batter supposed to be really thick? It is great though. I will have to taste one when its out of the oven...12 min to go.

except for the almond extract classic white II looks like a copy of rose levy's white cake. so it should turn out fine.

cake for 200...lordy, that's a lot of tiers! good luck!

The cupcakes came out great using the recipe above. 1 question though. Can you use anything other than sour cream to make a cupcake more dense. I need to make another batter, but dont have sour cream.
