please share it. I have been looking through recipes on here (there are so many!!) and I would like to try making an ALL scratch cake. Perferably one that is simple moist and not vanilla. My scratch cakes usually come out looking like mud pies or rock frisbies!!

I want to bake this cake tonight..as a treat for hubby, so any recipe that is fool proof would be greatly appreciated !!!

thank you.. so much !!

Look for sayhellojana and see if she has any of her recipes in that section. She makes everything from scratch and has posted on other threads.
She converts a lot of the box cake scratch combos.
Check out the thread Help Gourmet flavors. You will find a lot of her entries there along with Macsmom who posted all her flavors there but of mixed cakes.
good luck

Look in my siggy and you will find the google doc, it is the gourmet flavors one,
I use Rebecca Sutterby's WASC a lot, I am actually making it as we speak, I have also tried a lot of the others and love them, you can save and print for future reference.

Here is an easy full proof Double Chocolate cake recipe. It's fudgy, moist and delicious. I think it's one of the easiest scratch cakes to make and it comes out great every time.


Good luck!
