Anyone have a good cherry, strawberry, blueberry, mango, and/or pineapple scratch cake recipe they wouldn't mind sharing? I know a lot of the these WASC recipes are really flexible for adding fruit and things but I have not had much luck. My cakes always come out dense/flat/wet. Too much liquid? I am probably just not making the appropriate adjustments for the pureed fruit. I prefer to not use jello. I am playing around with fromscratchsf's scratch WASC recipe and love it so far. Not sure how to modify to accomodate fruit flavors. Thanks!

her recipe does show a substitution to make a strawberry cake... maybe follow that substitution with other fruit purees for other flavors?

Oh! I don't think I saw the strawberry somehow? Someone sent me her recipe. I will see if it is on her site. Thanks!
