Have any of you made the cake recipe from Whimsical Bakehouse called White Butter Cake? I'm on a mission to find a fabulous white cake recipe, and was wondering what any of you thought of this one. I was happily using the WASC (with oil) and loved it, until the box mix content appeared to be altered by the manufacturer. I don't want to be at the mercy of an unknown manufacturer, so I want to find a scratch white recipe that is just as good as the WASC recipe.
Any thoughts? If not this White Butter Cake recipe, any others I need to try? I'm open to any suggestions!!
I haven't tried that. There is a scratch version of the WASC that supposed to be comparable. The thread is posted on here somewhere
It is the egg yolk that makes the cake yellow so if you used egg whites and pale butter in your recipe, you could easily have a moist white cake.
I use the Sylvia Weinstock yellow cake--I leave out two egg yolks and use butter & real vanilla & it comes out like a white cake. I really like that recipe. I don't separate the eggs & whip the egg whites--I just add 'em in.
Plus I typo'd it once transcribing it into my recipe book and I use 2.5 cups of flour. Works for me!
