I'm so excited to FINALLY be trying the WASC recipe today. I just have a couple of questions for all of you CCers:
1) To make WASC into a lemon-flavored cake, would you use 1 tsp of lemon extract in place of the 1 tsp almond extract (so you'd have 1 tsp lemon & 1 tsp vanilla) or would you do 2 tsp lemon and no vanilla?
2) To make WASC into a yellow cake, would you substitute yellow cake mix and then use 6 whole eggs, rather than 8 egg whites?
Thanks so much!
1.) Lemon flavored- *I* would personally not use any vanilla at all in it; just all lemon extract in place of the vanilla/almond. I would also start with a lemon flavored cake mix.....(maybe you were already doing that?)
2.)Yellow- I still only use the egg whites when I use this recipe, no matter the flavor, but if you wanted to use the whole eggs, then yes, go ahead and use six. I would still use vanilla extract but not almond.
Callyssa, thank you so much for your answers.
You don't have to make such a big batch of cake to try the WASC I have posted many times. Only 4 whole eggs would be needed.
Use a lemon mix & lemon extract. You can do it either way - 1/2 lemon & 1/2 vanilla or all lemon OR even add 1 teaspoon lemon to the almond, vanilla, butter mix.
For the lemon cake, can I add some lemon zest?
At the bottom, they have some substitutes.
Yes, zest can be added to a cake mix.
