did you make the scratch wasc version, or the original wasc version which is made from a box?

I make the wasc from betty crocker, I've made it several times and people just rave about it. It's perfect for carving and so moist.

I don't understand your question. Did you not use a box mix? Betty Crocker is the one to use with a WASC to make it come out nice. icon_smile.gif

Here's a couple of threads. It might just help to read through them. One is the scratch WASC and the other is all about the box WASC. I always make the box WASC so I can't help you with the crumb issue.
Hope this helps.
