Thanks my friends!

I hate the floury taste as well icon_sad.gif

Hello. Can someone give me the exact address (or the link) for the Epicurious Website that I have read about and heard all great things for cake recipes.

Thank you.

This is my foolproof moist Red Velvet Cake recipe, I made it recently for a charity bake sale at my husband company and one woman told him it was the best she has ever had - and she has it every where she goes anytime she can.
I'm not sure how to add a link so hopefully it works -

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

3 sticks margarine
1 80z block cream cheese
3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
2 tsp vanilla flavoring
6 eggs

Cream margarine and cream cheese. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs 2 at a time. Mix well between each addition. Add flour all at once and mix well. Add vanilla flavoring and beat until mixed. Bake on 325 for 40-60 mins depending upon the cake pan. I've used this recipe in every cake an posible and it has always done fine.

Basic buttercream icing


140g/5oz butter, softened
280g/10oz icing sugar
1-2 tbsp milk

few drops food colouring

Preparation method

1. Beat the butter in a large bowl until soft. Add half of the icing sugar and beat until smooth.
2. Add the remaining icing sugar and one tablespoon of the milk and beat the mixture until creamy and smooth. Beat in the milk, if necessary, to loosen the mixture.
3. Stir in the food colouring until well combined.

I am new to scratch cake baking, but want to share my most-requested baking recipe:  Cook's Illustrated pie dough. The recipe (combination butter & shortening) emphasizes keeping the dough cold with an ice water and vodka mixture. 


I roll it out between plastic wrap because otherwise it's not that easy to handle with all the chunks of butter & shortening inside. Other than that, you WON'T be sorry! It was blogged about here:

Kristi, unless if you are making a fudge/mud cake, it's hard to beat the Hersheys Chocolate cake on the cocoa box label.
