Have you considered making the WASC and using a box of butter cake as your base? WASC is a shoe in for success! I use it for everything! HTH. Deb

I love Sylvia's cake recipe, too. I don't separate the eggs, just add them all at once:

Butter Cake
Based on Sylvia Weinstocks recipe
Fills (1) 12x3 pan or (2) 8x3 pans

2 ¼ C sifted cake flour
2 t baking powder
½ t salt
½ lb/ 8 0z (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temp.
2 C sugar
4 large eggs
2 t vanilla
1 C sour cream

1.Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt

3. Cream butter in large bowl till fluffy and light in color, about 2 min. on Med. Speed.
Add sugar and cont to beat till light and fluffy.

4. Add eggs, one at a time; Add vanilla or vanilla beans. (I'll scrape a vanilla bean's seeds into it and call it "vanilla bean butter cake")

5. Reduce speed to Low and add dry ingredients alternately with sour cream; beginning and ending w/ flour. Scrape sides of bowl and beat for 1 minute.

6. Bake till done: top should be nicely browned. Test for doneness with a toothpick- it should come out clean.
