WASC = White Almond Sour Cream Cake

Here is a link posted by Lisa in 2005, there are probably a lot more of them now.

Here is my *original* WASC recipe. The directions were developed for a KA 4 qt mixer:

Kakeladi's *Original* WASC cake
1 pkg white cake mix*
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
generous dash salt*

3 whole eggs
1 cup sour cream*
1 to 1 1/3 cups water
1 Tablespoon flavoring*
*See notes below

Mix dry ingredients in bowl - a whisk is helpful.
Place remaining ingredients in mixer bowl, add about 1/2 the dry ingredients; mix on low about 30 seconds; add remaining dry ingredients; mix about 30 seconds on low then turn to med (high if using hand held mixer) for 2 minutes (I time my beating).

*NOTES: Any cake flavor can be used. Match the flavoring to the cake flavor. For most cakes use a mixture of 1 part vanilla; 1/2 part butter & 1/4 part almond. A 'part' is any measure you care to use: can be teaspoon, Tablespoon, cup, quart etc, etc.
Many people have substituted things like using yogurt instead of sour cream; juice instead of water; and different flavorings.
I often forget the salt icon_sad.gif
I use a Pyrex glass measuring cup for the water, filling it full to the brim so it is more than one cup....
maybe about 1/3 more?
This recipe is in it's original form - nothing changed. Try it as originated icon_smile.gif

I'm so glad that you asked this question and that Suzie wrote back. I've been wondering about the lingo myself. I've just been guessing on half of it..but it's great to have!
