- My cakes tend to sink in the middle

- The cakes are TOO moist and therefore not great for carving, etc.

Then, one happy day I came across an amazing recipe for WASC that is from scratch. I can't take credit for this gem, it was originally posted on CC by edencakes. Let me tell you though, cake buddies, this is THE recipe. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now with outstanding results. It's super moist with a very fine crumb, has a delicious flavor, bakes up like a dream, and is firm enough for stacking and carving. I have even used this base recipe and made slight modifications for lemon cake, peanut butter cake, coconut cake, and pumpkin spice cake all with excellent, consistent results every time! So here it is:


A Better White Scratch Cake:

The OP didn't state a bake temp, but I have been baking at 350 with great results. Also, when I am not looking for a pure white cake I just use 5 whole eggs instead of 10 egg whites, and have had no problems doing so.THANK YOU edencakes for this amazing recipe!




How long to bake? I've looked through a bunch of,pages, and can't find that! icon_smile.gif

What is the difference between a regular cake and a sour cream one? Is it just a taste preference or a moist thing? I've had a sour cream pound cake before and it didn't really taste any different than a normal pound cake. So why all the hype about sour cream ones if there are lots of ways to make a moist cake? I'm sorry if my wording sounds antagonistic, I don't mean to be, I'm just super curious about it.

Made the Yellow Cake version of this tonight. When i filled the first pan, i decided the batter was too thick with  just 1 C whole milk  and added another 1/3 cup. I think that was my mistake. The batter was more box mix like, but when that cake (and the cupcakes) were cooling they sunk in the middle. The thicker pan didnt sink as much. Might try again exactly as written and go from there.

I just made this yesterday, and I was freaking out because the batter was so thick before I put in the eggs, it was straining my Kitchen Aide! Even after the eggs, it was like cookie dough aNd barely filled the bottom of the 10 inch pan. I thought I screwed something up big time! But when done, the cakes had baked way up high, and are delicious! But. I was really tempted to add extra liquid like you did!

Wondering how to make this a lemon cake? My friend wants a lemon cake for her birthday, and I was thinking of using this, as it is such a great recipe!
Thanks,
Nancy

Omit almond. Reduce vanilla by half. Natural lemon oil to taste, I like Boyajian brand, and lemon zest. No lemon juice, and only lemon extract if you are fine with the pledge like aftertaste.
