Anyone have this recipe or know how to convert the WASC into CHOCOLATE WASC?
I think all you have to do is add 6 whole eggs instead of 8 egg whites, and some people exchange the almond for more vanilla.
I made it a while back, and really didn't like it. I've made the regular version, and with yellow cake mix, but the chocolate was not very good. Perhaps others add more cocoa or something, but it did not have a strong chocolate taste.
For chocolate cake: use chocolate cake mixes, omit almond extract and substitute 6 whole eggs for the whites. Same applies to Marble Cakes.
i would also just use a chocolate cake mix. i bet you could still use the almond extract though. cake mix dr has a recipe for choc buttemilk cake that uses almond extract, and its delish!
Many thanks, guys! I hope the groom's cake turns out well... I'll try to post it when done!
Have a great weekend!
Chocolate Almond Sour Cream Cake
1 boxes chocolate cake mix
1 cups all-purpose flour
1 cups granulated sugar
3/4 teas. salt
1 1/3 cups water
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sour cream
1 teas. clear vanilla flavor
1 teas. almond extract
Mix all dry ingredients by hand using a whisk in a very large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat on low speed for 2 minutes. Bake at 325 degrees.
slp1956 gave me this recipe a longtime ago and I love it.
I made the WASC with chocolate cake mix exact to recipe. It was good but I wish I would have used vanilla instead of almond.
here is how to make chocolate plus other flavors
Chocolate cake: use chocolate mixes, omit almond extract and substitute 6 whole eggs for the whites.
Liqueur flavors: substitute alcohol (such as champagne or Kahlua) for about 1 cup of the water in the recipe
Berry flavors: use frozen berries, thaw reserving the juice. Substitute the berry juice for part of the water in the recipe, and stir the berries in at the end.
Egg whites you can use - 3 whole eggs and 1 egg white or 3 whole eggs (Carla, Sweet Dreams)
Banana flavor: (single recipe) = WASC recipe. add 1 box banana pudding, 1 banana mashed
1 tsp. banana flavor
For filling(is you want:: 1 box Banana pudding and 1 C whipping cream
For my own little twist to the chocolate cake version, I add about 3/4 teaspoon of apple pie spice. It just bumps up the flavor a bit and people love my chocolate cake. They always say they can't put their finger on what's different about it!
I finally tried the WASC cake, I didn't think you'd be able to taste the sour cream and I only used a half cup, am I the only one that doesn't like sour cream in the cake? Other than that it was good.
I recently made the wasc using the chocolate fudge cake mixes. Next I will add more chocolate. It hardly tasted like chocolate. So I will try to make ganache and fill it!
I halved the WASC recipe using DH Devils Food instead of white, used three whole eggs and added 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 3/4 cup of flour. Didn't use almond flavoring. Was very chocolate-y and moist.
