I tried this cake last wek and I really do like it! I used pure vanilla extract though; it will not change the color of the cake, but tastes soooo much better, and just a little almond extract. It tasted alomst like angel food cake! I call it Angel Food cake with all the guilt!

I'm thinking of trying the lemon version with the raspberry mousse listed earlier, Now I normally frost my cakes with IMBC, do you all think this would go well (taste wise) with the lemon/raspberry combo???

aminium Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 4:44pm

I tried the recipe last night. Very easy to make and they did aste very good. I used pure vanilla as well and had no problem with the color. It does kind of remind you of angel food cake, the texture is great!

You all have me very curious and drooling from the mouth about this cake. Can't wait to try it. I have a girl scout cake auction Feb. 12th and like to do different things. This years theme is "use your imagination".
I can't wait.

I had Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge mix in the house so I tried it with that. I followed the directions for the wasc, I didn't know there were variations on it icon_redface.gif It was so good!!! I had some buttercream in the freezer and mixed in some cocoa and raspberry preserves, they were gone in minutes. I will definitely be making this again.

I'm making this cake tomorrow. I just have one question... What the heck are you guys doing with all the yolks?!

kaychristensen Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 9:28pm

When I did mine I just did the 6 whole eggs and it still looked white. So I don't know your answer

kaychristensen Posted 27 Jan 2007 , 12:03am

If you are using just the half recipe with one cake mix. It is 3 whole eggs. I hope this helps.

Houston we have a problem: I've made the WASC cake three times now. The first time it came out great, moist and delicious. The second and third times it came out dry. Has anyone added pudding to the mix? If so, how did it affect the final result?

CakeBaker Posted 28 Jan 2007 , 2:42pm

Glad to see ya'll like my recipe. Back about 5 or 6 years ago, I tried out a boatload of cake recipes one Summer trying to find a great white cake recipe. Some where scratch, others were doctored mixes. What I was looking for was a recipe that had nice flavor, that I could bake with consistent results every time, and wasn't insanely difficult to get in the oven. At the time, I didn't even own a stand mixer and I just wasn't going to stand there whipping enough egg whites to make 350 servings of white cake in one day. Anyhow, the result was me combining ingredients & instructions from a couple different recipes to create the WASC.

For the lemon version, I'd stay away from Lemon mixes. Instead, sub 1 cup lemon juice for part of the water, and use a good lemon extract and zest.

The almond extract can very easily be left out without adding extra vanilla. And I always use real vanilla, too. Leftover yolks -- I just toss 'em -- 'cause what are you going to do with 12 dozen egg yolks?!

Happy baking,
Rebecca Sutterby

Ummm....make pastry cream? Ice cream? Lemon curd? mousse? german chocolate cake frosting? Key lime Pie? I could go on icon_lol.gif

Stop tossing them - freeze 'em and send them to me!

karenm0712 Posted 28 Jan 2007 , 5:31pm

I just have to tell you all that I am making this cake AGAIN today! icon_smile.gif I have been craving it all week!!! Thanks CakeBaker for this WONDERFUL recipe!!!!!

bobwonderbuns Posted 28 Jan 2007 , 9:48pm

But how does it work with a pudding added into the mix? Has anyone tried that?

sweetamber Posted 28 Jan 2007 , 9:58pm

Why do you need to add pudding?
(Hi Bob!)

bobwonderbuns Posted 28 Jan 2007 , 10:00pm

Hi Amber! icon_wink.gificon_biggrin.gif

I made the white almond sour cream cake three times and the last two times they were very dry, first time was delicious. I used the DH moist deluxe and everything. I'm just wondering if the pudding would ruin the integrity of the recipe.

sweetamber Posted 28 Jan 2007 , 10:05pm

I heard from a little bird that DH changed their formula, maybe that's the problem....I'm not experienced with boxed mix though so I am no expert. Try it with another brand!

mitsel8 Posted 29 Jan 2007 , 1:02am

That explains it! I used a DH mix and the cake was not that great. I'll have to try Betty crocker or Pillsbury. Thanks CakeBaker.

kaychristensen Posted 29 Jan 2007 , 1:20am

I used it with 3 different flavors of BC with no problem. And they taste Heavenly OK now I am craving it again. Going to have to try a new flavor tonight now icon_lol.gif

daltonam Posted 29 Jan 2007 , 1:37am

if BOB just made all of these cakes, then this is not the reason for her problem--good luck BOB.

torki Posted 29 Jan 2007 , 1:57am

I just made this cake and added 3 really ripe bananas and used whole eggs ....WOW...yum. icon_lol.gif

bobwonderbuns Posted 29 Jan 2007 , 3:11am

Thank you Tara. icon_wink.gif

kaychristensen Posted 29 Jan 2007 , 5:00am

WOW My last post sounded weird when I reread it I meant Betty Crocker not Buttercream icon_redface.gif

Janette Posted 29 Jan 2007 , 5:05am

I just want to tell you that I made the Almond cake for the first time yesterday for a bride coming in for a taste test. I got the order.

That cake is out of this world - thank you so much for sharing the recipe.
