Hi everyone,

I've been taking a kitchen chemistry course for school and have been very intrigued by it all! Because of this course I would like to try making my own cake recipe from complete scratch--no recipe alterations whatsoever. But before I can do this I need some more references. Can you direct me to a book or website that can show me the correct ingredient proportions necessary for a layer cake?

Thank you!
Rebekah

Search for "bakers formulas."

This is the one that I am currently looking at.

Yeah, I went to that website before and found a good amount of information. I wanted to share with you a very good article about Baker's Percentage that I found on the King Arthur's Flour website. Check it out http://www.kingarthurflour.com/professional/bakers-percentage.html.

I think with both of these sites I can figure out my cake recipe. Thanks for the help.
