To make self-rising flour:

For EACH cup of self-rising flour, sift together 2 or 3 times the following: 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

I also suggested Serious_Cake's yellow cake recipe from her youtube videos, but I understand if this was vetoed because of the shortening or something, whereas the others are butter-based.

I'm excited to begin! Hopefully I'll have some time tomorrow.

Well the Cake Man recipe calls for oil and I am choosing it as one of my recipes to try. So I don't think anyone was prejudice against the shortening. I think your entry may have just been overlooked. If I remember right you didn't post a link or recipe right, just a name?

I would like to see more varied recipes like a shortening base. It seems like we have a lot of 1-2-3-4 based ones. It would be neat to have different methods like Billy's cupcakes or Cook's Illustrated where you add the fat to the dry first then add the liquids.

But, this is our first scratch off I am sure we will learn and tweak as we go along.

yeah some of the recipes are almost alike. i do know that the mermaid bakery and paula deen's are similar. i have tried the sky high cake which is basically one bowl it was good but turned out very dense. so am gonna try recipes that i haven't tried before.

i'll do the cakeman recipe.

I use cakeman's recipe for my red velvet and its awesome. I'm assuming that it would have the same texture without the cocoa or red coloring, so it's probably really good icon_smile.gif

I have made Serious_Cake's recipe about a trillion times so of course I will comment on that. I love that recipe and it is currently my go-to. We'll see if any of these can sway me! lol.

I plan on trying The All-Occasion Downy Yellow Cake and either Toba Garett's or K8Memphi's Golden cake.

I apologize, Hellojana, it was an oversight. I looked over the initial thread several time to try to avoid missing someone's entry...I guess my eyes are getting old, too icon_redface.gif .

Here is the Serious Cakes recipe, submitted by HelloJana:

If if didn't post correctly, the video along with the ingredient list is on YouTube.

Yes, so there are 14 recipes.........right? Thirteen in the first-mentioned group, polus the serious_cakes recipe on youtube!
I like that we now have at least one cake each using butter, oil, and shortening. Gives people many options......

Toba's is on epicurious . com under "Moist Yellow Cake". I will try to post a link.......
edited to add.....here it is

Darlita, Do you mind going back and editing your post on page one to add the 2 links.....to serious cakes and the Toba cake? It would be less confusing that way.......if they are all in the one post. Then lost baker could add those two to her "name list" as well....and then we'd be all caught up???!!.....OH, it's a different one that lost baker is missing. Well, anyway....you get the idea.

Lostbaker........I think we had decided to go ahead and include it, .....since it has 3 sticks of butter in it it comes out kind of yellow? icon_lol.gif
I am baking it anyway, independent of the bake-off, so I can comment on it too.

OK, here is what I'm doing:

Great American Cakes by Barbara Kafka
Sylvia Weinstock's Classic Yellow Cake Recipe
Vanilla Buttermilk Recipe from Sky High

Oh, and I'm also baking:
White on White Buttermilk Cake for a cake order.....so I can comment on that

If I have time at the end of the month, I may add......
Cakeman Raven's Modified Red Velvet
Serious_Cakes Yellow Cake

I've been following these 2 threads from the beginning and am excited to try out some new recipes and to hear feedback from people on other recipes - thanks for putting this all together!

so... forgive me if I'm asking a stupid question...
Are you saying that you need to "register" to participate? I can't guarantee that I'll have time to try at least 2 cakes, so I'm hesitant to do that. But what if I can? Can I post my "results" even if I haven't "registered" in the beginning?
