All-Occasion Downy Yellow

Judging Criteria
1. Flavor - mostly vanilla, slightly eggy
2. Texture/Crumb - very, very light. the cake crumbled a bit more than I would have liked. I found it very similar to grocery store cupcakes (not cakes) because it was a bit crumbly.
3. Moistness - I'd give it a 6 out of 10 on moistness. I would have liked it to be more moist
3. Ease of Recipe - reverse creaming method, easy peasy
4. Cost of Recipe - real butter, cake flour - $$$, but the whites aren't used in the cake and can be used in the frosting, so that is less wasteful
5. Ability to convert into cupcakes - I think this would be a better cupcake than a cake.

I halved the recipe and baked in 6'' pans. I have photos if anyone would like to see. It rose beautifully. Overall, I'd give it a 7. Good flavor, fair texture, but not quite moist enough.

sayhellojana,

Just wanted to clarify. Is your critique on the All-Occasion Downy Yellow Cake? If possible, can you add that to the post with your results. I know that you stated it was in the oven 2 posts before that but it might be a little easier for the tabulator to add the results at the end of this month's Scratch-Off. icon_smile.gif

Thanks a bunch. I'm just trying to make it a little easier for those, like myself, with bad eyes icon_wink.gif

I see what you all mean about the similarity of the recipes! I was comparing ingredients in order to select my two, and noticed that the Great American/Kafka recipe is just a scaled version of K8's Doubleday cake, except the Doubleday cake adds a touch of lemon. The Doubleday cake is nearly identical to the Magnolia (not so) Lemon cake except it uses extract instead of juice, plus some vanilla and a tad more milk. Also nearly the same as WBH Gold but that one uses an 2 yolks in place of one of the eggs, and lots of buttermilk and vanilla, which is why I'm trying it. I'd compare more ingredients but it's giving me a headache icon_lol.gif

Sorry about that. I edited the post to clarify.

Is it too late to add one more topic to the testing criterias?
I really would like to know how these cakes test on the third day? (I usually bake on Thursday, ice if possible, decorate on Friday for Saturday. The customer gets to eat it on the third day. I still want my cake to be moist on that day too. If I recall well, Rose sais about the All occasion downy cake that it is most moist on the day it is made.
What do you, guys think?

I'll be sure to let you know how the Downy yellow is in 3 days. It's a small cake, but not too many people stop by. lol. I paired it with some strawberry filling I had on hand and IMBC. Overall a good cake.
