Has anyone had any luck finding a recipe for a white cake that is moist? If so, would you please share it? I'm having a really hard time finding one and my experiments aren't exactly succeeding... Thanks!!!

i have the book-cakemix doctor and for white cake it says to add whole eggs instead of just the whites. i tried this and the cake was yummy and moist! icon_lol.gif

I also add the whole eggs to the white cake mix, I also add 1/2 cup of oil instead of a 1/3 of a cup. And if you can get it a teaspoon of butter vanilla to each cake mix. I also bake a 325 instead of 350 it takes a little longer but i have had nothing but good results. My butter vanilla is made by magic line. It really makes a difference.
Hope that helps

Yes...butter-vanilla smells like it sounds. Sometimes I even think it almost smells "rum"-ish. But it's good. It's an emulsion...I get mine at my local cake supply store. You only need a little, thus the tsp. measurement, because it is thick and concentrated.

It's wonderful!!! I've gotten it on my clothes several time and I've gotten nothing but compliments about how good I smell. But honestly it is an amazing product.

it's so moist and yummy. it's the only white cake i make now. it has cream of coconut in it, but you really can't taste the coconut flavor. i don't usually use the cream cheese frosting it calls for, just my usual buttercream. delish!!

same here, I also use whole eggs, but use whole milk as well.

I use the White Almond Sour Cream cake from this website and everyone raves over it.

BCJean Posted 14 Apr 2008 , 11:19pm

I second the vote for the recipe krystalp suggested with the cream of coconut. I use that same exact recipe and it makes a perfect white cake IMO.

I had the BEST white cake in my life this weekend! The girl who made it said it was her own recipe. All I know is she did add some egg yolks to it and I believe she said she melted her butter. She also added a mixture of buttermilk and sour cream. Everyone at the party said it was like a piece of heaven! I wish I had the recipe icon_sad.gif

I always add a small package of white chocolate pudding to each cake box and only use Duncan Hines. It has been a proven winner each time for me icon_smile.gif

I use the Epicurious recipe as well, and it is awesome! Super moist and you cannot taste the coconut. Yummy!!

I use Sylvia Weinstock's white cake recipe for scratch white cakes. I'm pretty sure I've posted the recipe here before.

I couldn't find it in the recipes. Is it under another name?

Chef_Stef Posted 14 Apr 2008 , 11:38pm

Try a general search with Sylvia Weinstock's name...

or you could search my posts specifically.

If you can't find it, I'll dig it out; it's pretty basic.

It also works great with the CoffeeMate flavors added to it, to make any variety of flavored cakes.

golfgirl1227 Posted 14 Apr 2008 , 11:57pm

Rebecca Rather's White on White Buttermilk Cake. I just started using this instead of the one I've been using, and it's so good. A google search will provide you with the recipe.

I like the white butter cake from the Cake Bible and I use a little flavored simple syrup on it and it keeps it very moist.

Chef_Stef Posted 15 Apr 2008 , 2:03am

Yep, the Cake Bible white velvet butter cake is great, too! Forgot that one...

For this cake, is it possible to substitute sour cream for the coconut cream?

I don't think you could make that substitution. It is cream of coconut, not coconut cream. It is sweetened and more like condensed milk.
