I have a simple sponge cake recipe that always turns out, no brainer really. This morning we made a batch and the batter was a bit off, and after tasting the cake, it tasted watery. The crumb and texture were perfect. But the taste was off. We are sure all of the ingredients were present and correctly mesured. Obviously we did something wrong. To help identify it, what would leave a cake watery tasting?

Although it is a well-received Hot Milk Cake recipe on numerous sites, if you don't like the taste, try reducing the amount of milk slightly to 1 cup and upping the vanilla to 2 teaspoons. Other than that, you may have to try another variation to the recipe ..for example ..

Thanks I will try the modified recipe. However, I have the first recipe before and it turned out great. I was wondering if there was a common mistake (that I might have made) that produces a watery-tasting cake.
