Wow I am a moron, I clearly have my flour bins labeled but I was in a hurry and I just realized I used bread flour instead of AP! They are baking as I type icon_lol.gif , has anyone ever done this before? How do you think it will turn out? It's only on one layer I have two more to go, I will be freezing them....?

Sorry, I wish I could help. Maybe you can taste the one that sank for texture? detective.gif

I used self rising flour by accident in a pound cake recipe that didn't call for any leavening and it made a huge mess in my oven when it overflowed. The texture was very soft and wouldn't hold up from what I needed so I had to rebake. Bread flour may not affect it too much. Just try it and see when it cools and you trim it.

Don't rebake the 8" until you taste it. I would level it first, and see how the texture is when the cut-off crown cools. You might have just ended up with something dense, like a pound cake.

Thanks everyone, I am going to cut the 6" and see how it is when cooled! Hopefully I won't need to redo, that's what I get for rushing! icon_rolleyes.gif

Me, too.

And how did the cake turn out? I almost did that once, too, so now I keep the bread flour on a high shelf!

The cake tasted fine to me! A little more dense but I like dense cakes so it works. The recipe is posted on CC somewhere, basically you use Dark Choc Fudge Cake Mix ( I use 1 box devils food and 1 box dark choc fudge) instead of white, 1/2 c veg oil instead of 1/4 c, 6 eggs instead of 8 whites, 1 tbs vanilla and 1 tbs instant coffee (dissolve in the water first) Use all other ingredients the same as the white WASC. It's really good, I love it! BTW, you can't taste the coffee in it once baked.

Oh yeah, you DO NOT use almond extract icon_razz.gif
