Well i made my first WASC using the "original" recipe. However I feel it had a weird texture, not smooth like most cake feels when you eat it. Kinda of "grainy" I think is the best way to describe it. Maybe I over cooked, otherwise I'm not sure.
Has anyone else had this problem or know what I can do it prevent this from happening because I LOVE the taste!!
Sounds like a mixing problem...
I've made both Rebecca Sutterby's and kakeladi's original WASC recipes and have found their texture to be great (not too light/not too dense).
Handy cake troubleshooting charts:
Did you eat it right away? The WASC to me is one of those cakes that is better the next day or so.
Do you normally make straight/doctored mixes? If not then that coudl be why. I don't like the texture of the WASC cake either but it's because I much prefer scratch made cakes. It could just be a case of it not being the recipe for you.
