I am tire of cake mixes and would like to try cake recipes from scratch can you recomend a book or a link were I can find cake recipes from scratch? thanks
Some great standbys are Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake and there are some long threads on yellow and white cakes. I don't save those threads, but someone will come along and give you links.
Many of us modify the chocolate one, so be sure to read down through the threads.
Another way to get some great recipes is to start a thread with asking for just one flavor. You will get the favorites. Then go on to another flavor with another thread.
So happy to see a convert. Don't give up if you fail a few times. We all do.
If tou type "scratch" in the Search Recipes box above you will find some good recipes.
I too have been getting tired of mixes for a variety of reasons. I tried this recipe the other day and my family loved it! Just know it makes a lot of batter, I made 2 8" rounds and 2 6" rounds.
I also have found this website very helpful as well.
best book you'll ever pick up is The Cake Bible, then Roses Heavenly Cakes
Thank you so much for all your help I have a big event in Nov. I am so happy I am not making the cake but as soon as I finish with my project I will start with this project. thanks a lot
