I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions to lighten up the WASC recipe. It's very yummy, but the last couple of times that I've made it, it was too moist/dense/sweet.

I could experiment and see what happens but was hoping that someone else has changed it up with good results.

Thanks, Cindy

Wellll....the whole point of it is to be moist and a bit denser. Are you sure you're cooking it long enough? Did you think it was fine before and just not the past few times you've baked it?

Sorry, not trying to sound like a smarty pants, but if you don't like the denser/moister WASC, why not just bake the mix unchanged?

Not a smarty pants!! icon_lol.gif I appreciate the comments.

Perhaps I didn't bake it long enough but the cakes were pulling away from the sides and lightly browning on top, toothpick clean when inserted. Yes, the alternative is to use the boxed mix as is or try a scratch recipe.

I really like the chocolate version, the white I'm still working on...

I'm afraid I have to agree w/Jodi. It is meant to be dense, moist and yummmmmy icon_smile.gif

Have you ever tried Sylvia Weinstock's classic yellow cake? It's actually not a dark yellow, kind of a cross between white/yellow cake. I think you'd like the texture of it, it's moist without being heavy/wet......KWIM?


Just do a google search for it and it will come up!
