I appreciate your input, and you may be right about technique. However, I have tried it all, even under baking and I am still not happy with the result. I get perfect results on every other flavor, just haven't found a vanilla recipe that brings a result to meet my standards.
So many on this site, raves about silvia weinstock"s yellow cake. Got the recipe , but haven,t tried it yet. Don,t know it is posted here, if not. Then just check it out on the internet. It is there, i know. I,m sure , you know what you are doing. You just haven,t found the recipe you like so far.Hope you do.
personally I like the super enhanced cake recipe on this site way better then the WASC but that is personal opinion. I also pull my cakes with crumbs on the tester because I feel like there is a small amount of carry-over cooking going on. Also, don't mix your cake on full speed. I use speed 2 on the kitchenaid stand mixer, if you over beat you could get dry, crumbly cake. Good luck in your quest for the best cake....that just means you have to (for the sake of good cake) taste test many
I love the "durable cake for 3d and wedding cakes".the recipe is in the most saved section. I have a french vanilla one in the oven as I type.
I use a french vanilla mix (duncan hines or betty crocker) and vanilla pudding mix. It is moist and tasty every time.
Thank you all so much! I appreciate all of the suggestions, both boxed and scratch! So much helpful info, I'm sure I'll find something I like here. Looks like I have a lot of taste testing ahead of me, so much for my diet...
