Does one exists. I don't have cakemix available and my cousin liked
this cake when she visited me, but they don't have the cakemixes
where she lives and wants me to make one when I go overthere.
Thanks,
Zuyata

Another expat in Holland! Hello!!!

Can't you take a mix with you? I dont' even know where I can get a mix here in Holland...reasonably priced anyway.

When I go home to the States, I'll take different mixes and spices with me so I can cook/bake some Dutch things for my family.

I would also very much like a scratch recipe on WASC. Does anyone have one?? I cannot get those box mixes here in Sweden.

Hey, WASC users!

Do you think this would work as a scratch recipe for WASC?

Sorry Homemade goodies not an expat. I'm originally from Suriname,
now living in Holland 15 years already. I have to bake the cake in
Suriname during the summer holiday. They don't have the mix there
and customs are really bad there, they told me not to bring the mix with me.
If customs sees it they will throw it away. I haven't been back there in
15 years so I have no idea what to expect.
I'll give the recipe for texas sheetcake a try.
Thanks,

I understand about Customs, that can surely be a problem.

Wow, 15 years! How wonderful that you get the opportunity to go back at this time! I hope that you have a wonderful time, and let us know how your recipe turns out! icon_biggrin.gif

Veel plezier, and lekker eten!!

I'm concerned about the butter content in that recipe. The WASC recipe has no butter and only 2 TBSP oil. It also uses egg whites and water for additional moisture (as opposed to the butter in this recipe.) You can try it and play with it though. Let us know what happens!

You may want to try some of the white cake recipes from the Magnolia bakery as well and play with them. That might give you a place to start anyway. Hope that helps! icon_biggrin.gif

Base

* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 3/4 cups sugar
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 4 tablespoons vegetable shortening
* 1 box of vanilla pudding mix

Combine flour, sugar, vanilla pudding mix, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Now stir to combine. Add shortening, using electric mixer on medium speed to blend the shortening into the dry ingredients. Make sure it is all work in!


Added ingredients to make WASC
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3 whole eggs (even for white cakes)
1 cup water
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon almond emulsion (stronger than flavoring)

In a bowl, mix 1st base with first 3 ingredients in added ingredients. Set aside.
Place remaining ingredients in mixer bowl then add the dry.
Mix on low (I use a KA mixer) speed for 30 seconds, until dry ingredients are incorporated; mix at medium 2 minutes.
This makes 1 & 1/2 times the usual batter than a 'straight' cake mix. It will fill one of the following pans: 8" sq; 12" round; 9x13x2; OR one 10" and 6" round.

Thanks Terrier! That looks like a great recipe! Do you have other variations for it besides the WASC?

Thanks Terrier, I'll give your recipe a try.

Thanks terrier. That sounds great. I will try that one. Just one question... How much is in your "vanilla pudding mix"?
I'm guessing it's some kind of powder that normally will be mixed with milk (or water mabye) to make pudding. I think I can find something like that, but want to get the right amount.

Hi Guys,

I just use the JELL-O Instant Pudding and Pie Filling 4 servings.


You can change the pudding flavour to anything and add
# 1 1/3 cups water
# 1/2 cup vegetable oil
# 3 large egg

# Preheat the oven to 350*F. Grease sides and bottoms of two 9" baking pans, or one 9x13" pan. Lightly flour the greased pans. Blend the dry cake base with water, oil, and eggs in a large bowl with the mixer at low speed until just moistened. Kick up the speed to medium and mix about 2 more minutes.

Pour batter into pans and bake 30-33 minutes for the 9" pans and 35-38 minutes for the 9x13" pan.If you wish to make cupcakes, bake for 19-22 minutes.


Cheers!

It's like a knock off of DH....
Oh I use super fine sugar sometimes and cake flour.. if you use the cake flour remember to lower the amount of BS and BP and put a little less sugar.

Sorry guys if you want to make it chocolate you need to also add 3/4-1 cup cocoa to the base along with all the other Ingredients.

Cheers!

Here's a good scratch recipe that I tried and REALLY liked:

3 cups sifted cake flour
1 T. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
6 egg whites
1/2 cup sour cream

Oven=325
Grease and flour (2) 8 or 9" round pans. Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
Mix extracts with the milk. Set aside.
Cream butter until smooth. Add sugar and beat until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Alternate adding flour mixture and milk mixture and mix just until incorporated. Beat egg whites until stiff. Gently fold in the egg whites making sure that no white streaks are showing. Pour into prepared pans.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan 15-20 min, then finish cooling on rack.

Enjoy!!
