Hi guys! I want to know your favorite (from scratch please..) vanilla cake recipe. A cake moist, not too dense, can be curve, with a fine crumb (but does not crumble), and can be great for cupcakes too! A versatile cake that can be change in lemon or other flavor cake.

 

You know this recipe? ;)

LOL!!! Just kidding.

Never tried it but FromscratchSF has a modified version of the scratch WASC that has gotten really good reviews. Tons of tips and variations. Check it out:

I like this one for a vanilla cake.  It's easy and it bakes up nicely.

I use half butter and half vegetable oil in my recipe.  It think it tastes better and stays moist longer.

I have to agree with vgcea.  I have tried fromscratchsf's recipe and it's wonderful!  It is now my go-to vanilla/white cake recipe.  I've even used it for a cookies & cream version of the cake and it worked out beautifully.  You will definitely be pleased with this recipe!  It's great for cupcakes, too.
