Good Day All!!!
I know that this question has been raised, so please excuse the repeat. I know it is a matter of preference but please, please indulge me.
Which do you like best and why Toba Garrett or Sylvia Weinstock???
I am looking for a "scratch" butter/yellow layer cake recipe that is not dense, but moist, cost effective and "no-fail" if you will.
Thanks in advance,
I have tried Toba's cake and love it because it was easy to handle. I have never tried Sylvia's recipe, but if it uses extra egg yolk, you will get a moister cake.
I have tried Sylvia Weinstock's yellow cake...in her book she says "it will be the only yellow cake you'll ever need" and I wouldn't disagree. It uses cake flour and calls for the eggs to be separated and the whites to be beaten stiff and folded in at the end, and it makes a really nice cake with a good crumb, not too dense. It is a good cake.
I've tried Toba's yellow cake and I didn't like it at all. It was really dense and dry and crumbly. I thought it tasted like paste.

Looks like I'm trying Sylvia Weinstock's Classic Yellow Cake
This may be too late, but I have only tried Toba Garrett's recipe and loved it. This will be my "go to" recipe for yellow cake.
