I think you'll find almost everyone around here loves this recipe and uses it alot!

I grew up on scratch cakes and have always hated cake mix, but this recipe really turns out great and tastes very good. To me it doesn't even taste like a mix is used.

I call it the no fail cake. It never messes up for me.

That recipe is rated in the CC recipes:

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-2322-White-Almond-Sour-Cream-Cake.html

and also on the recipezaar website:

If made according to recipe, this is an almond flavored white cake (if using white cake mixes).

Since the base is a cake mix, it tastes like a regular cake - only it's more moist... And the flavor depends on what flavor cake mix and/or flavorings you use.

That's the WASC recipe and everyone on here raves about it. It is good. If you dont like almond you can use all vanilla. It really is a really moist cake and its good.

thanks, you gals are fast!! I usually bake scratch cakes, but have seen the raves for this recipe and wanted to give it a whirl.
I knew it was rated very high on here, but wish there was a comment section on the recipes! Like, is it dense, light, moist, carving worthy, etc...Is there one that I have not found yet? I checked out that other site, thanks for the tip, it had just what I was looking for.

Im so tired, is this making sense...thank for the help icon_biggrin.gif

I use the WASC recipe a LOT and its wonderful! The cake is very moist and is great for carving as well. I made the chocolate variation last weekend and everyone asked what bakery it had come from and say they will never let anyone else make any cake for them!

This is the ONLY recipe I use and everyone raves about my cakes! Tonight I just made a regular WASC and I also made a strawberry version. I usually just buy the store brand cake mix, but for the chocolate I really like the Triple Chocolate Fudge by Betty Crocker. I like the little chocolate chips in it! This recipe always turns out for me...it's just the best!!
