A long time ago there was a debate on mix vs scratch and someone posted a recipe for a home made "mix". She said she make the mixes then bags them and then adds the rest of the ingredients later. Any one know what I am talking about?
I always use a variation of the WASC and i want to try baking from scratch but everything i try is dry. and does not hold up as long. Any ideas.
thanks

That doesn't really make much sence because it's the sour cream that keeps the cake moist. My WASC cakes turn out moist. Interesting to hear some other opinions on what you can try.

I know user 'sayhellojana'
uses this scratch version just like a wasc



Scratch Version (yellow cake)-seriouscakes recipe

2 3/4 c. all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 c. shortening
2 c. sugar
4 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 c. milk


you can subsitute the liquid part for anything else like you would with a wasc, it sounds like she uses this just like a wasc. i have been meaning to try it because I also want to find a scratch recipe that i can adapt like a wasc, i dont want to always be dependent on using a box in my cakes.
i was going to try this reicpe then throw in sourcream or flavored yogurt and dry pudding like i do to a wasc, i havent gotten a chance.
good luck. hth.
