AHi! Im looking for a 1-2-3-4 cake recipe or similar that you could add or substitute to a "base" recipe to make a chocolate, strawberry, etc. batters. Like a basic batter you can modify to different flavors.

Thank you

Hi Naty, for all my cakes I use a standard vanilla recipe sponge and add flavoured fillings according to the customers preference (I have millions!).


My stock recipes are vanilla sponge, chocolate fudge cake, carrot cake and, what we call in the UK, a rich fruitcake (brandy/rum or whisky).


This keeps things oh so simple for me, and only once did I ever have a customer specifically request the addition of lime zest to the sponge for a lime & coconut flavoured cake. And I've been making wedding cakes for years!


I know it's not what you asked specifically, but I just thought I'd share my perspective.  I'm a big believer in keeping things simple too - and stress free!
