So in a week I am making a two tiered engagement cake for very good friends of mine. I want to make a layer Devil's Food and a layer White Cake. I have been trying some recipes off of MarthaStewart.com and haven't been sucessful. It seems like no matter what the cakes are dry! I do not overbake them so that is not the cause. Does anyone have any really good moist recipes for Devil's Food/Chocolate and White Cake???
The one on the Hershey can is very good.
Google Sylvia Weinstock yellow cake (but it comes out white, no worries) Then I do not separate the eggs but I only use like two of the yolks.
I mix it >>>
cream the butter
add extra fine sugar & beat well,
make a good emulsion--get it all fluffy,
add 1/3 flour mixture & mix,
add 1/2 sour cream & mix,
add 1/3 flour & mix,
add rest of sour cream & mix
add rest of flour,
beat for two mins.
Love that cake!!
that's my fave scratch yellow cake too! WASC is my fave doctored. you can find it under recipes as white almond sour cream. for chocolate i like darn good chocolate cake. haven't found a scratch yet that i like as much but i'm still searching. good luck on your friend's cake!
