I know there are threads on White Cakes, but I am looking for something very specific.

I am looking for a white cake or near white cake with a very fine crumb and that is light and tender made from scratch.

If you are willing share your recipe and photo I would greatly appreciate it. I tried cook's illustrated white layer cake and it had the very fine crumb and was light and tender but it was spongy.

The recipe for Elvis' favorite pound cake is pretty white with a very fine crumb (you use cake flour and sift several times), but of course more dense.

I like to use part yolks and part egg whites which reduces the "eggy" flavor of the pound...and I reduce the sugar a tad, too. The outside of the cake browns, but the inside is pretty white, especially if you omit a few of the egg yolks.

AIf you do not want to try FromScratch's, which is a great option, I'd suggest King Arthur's tender white cake or their elegant white cake. Possibly even ice water white cake? All are available online.
