hey everyone
it seems i am on a never-ending search for a good scratch vanilla cake recipe. i have tried soo many and didn't like one of them. i am looking for a cake thats moist but slightly dense and perfect for carving or stacking. i would love to hear of any suggestions or any recipes that are tried and true. i would love a go-to cake recipe.

It's not a scratch recipe but my *original* WASC recipe matches perfectly your requirementsicon_smile.gif

Sylvia Weinstock's yellow cake --it comes out white--just google the recipe..

I do not separate the eggs I just use them altogether but I only use two yolks.

It is awesome and if you chill it it needs to be microzapped (in the microwave) to loosen back up.

I just tried Vanilla Butter Cake from the Mermaid Bakery.. the recipe is on this site.. and it turned out pretty well. Good consistancy and it was pretty moist. I used real buttermilk opposed to the milk and vinegar called for on the recipe.

Overall, I'd deff make it again, but I think it needs a tad bit more flavor. Someone suggested adding 1tsp creme bouquet and 1tsp vanilla, for an added flavor boost.

Hope that helps!

We make these cookies with the soured milk made from apple cider vinegar & milk and they're just not the same without it.

I just want to recommend to you tp try this cake with the soured milk--although I've never tried it myself but the appley vinegar gives a nice snap of flavor that extracts can't provide.

Just a (flavor) snappy thought for you. icon_biggrin.gif

A lot of the outcomes in scratch recipes is the technique.

I use WASC. It's not entirely scratch, but it's moist and stackable and carvable!
