Hmmm...You don't run into the problem of what you are going to do with your egg yolks.

Actually, Sutterby's IS the original. The others are spin-offs of her recipe.

It seems this has been previously discussed, and kakeladi named her version "original" because RS's (CC member CakeBaker's) version is based on hers.


kakeladi's original and Kathy Sutterby's are identical in that both use any flavor cake mix and both use whole eggs. (If you want a truly white WASC cake, then only use egg whites [Rebecca Sutterby style] or use whole eggs [kakeladi stylel] for a French Vanilla looking WASC.)

kakeladi's original WASC cake recipe:


Rebecca Sutterby's White Almond Sour Cream cake recipe:


How the two recipes differ:

kakeladi uses 3 whole eggs for white cake (RS uses 4 eggs white)

kakeladi's uses no oil or fat (RS uses 2 TBSP. oil)

kakeladi uses 1 cup of water (RS uses 1 1/3 cup of water)

Mixing directions aren't the same.


kakeladi's recipes use any flavor cake mix but everything else remains the same. (Can play with flavorings.)

RS recipe gives a chocolate variation but any cake mix flavor can be used and she give suggestions for using fruit or lemon juice, frozen fruit, liquor/liqueurs, or white chocolate. (Can play with flavorings.)

Now a lot of members have come up with their own versions of the above recipes so that "WASC" cake is almost a generic description rather than a specific recipe.
