I am on a quest for the perfect vanilla cake that can be used for cupcakes and cakes ... I have found Hersey's Perfect Chocolate Cake, which is absolutely perfect for chocolate cakes, but every vanilla cake I try, it leaning towards the dry side, or they aren't sweet enough ... it's sad to say, but I'm looking for a vanilla cake that resembles a cake mix vanilla cake ...
Anyone have a fool proof recipe that they wouldn't mind sharing?!?
Great white cake scratch-off:
Member recommended scratch recipes:
Why would you want it to resemble a cake mix? I bake moist cakes from scratch, but they don't resemble mixes. If it resembles a mix, you will have gone to all that trouble and people will think it's a mix. Might as well do the mix.
Shirley Corriher's Magnificent Moist Golden Cake. My absolute favorite. Google the name, and the recipe will show up.
I tried several different vanilla cupcake recpies, then imagenthatnj pointed me towards this recipe:
Look for the 'Vanilla Buttermilk Cake', it's from the sky high book. Ever since then, I have needed no other vanilla cake or cupcake recipe, it's wonderful in either.
I, too love Shirley Corriher's yellow cake! I have not tried doubling the recipe yet. Has anyone tried doubling with great results?
