I make Roland's yellow cake also. It is very good. I e-mailed and asked them if a/p flour or cake flour. They said a/p flour. That is what i use. It is moist and has a good taste.

OK.. So I just tired this recipe and I am in love with it. No need for me to look elsewhere for a different white cake recipe. I filled the cake with homemade strawberry filling.. definitely keeping this recipe.

 

Thanks for sharing!

I made Winbecklers cake this week.  6 of them 10in pans.  Not one turned out.  They all sunk in the middle.  The taste was wonderful but they would raise and look perfect and awhile later I looked in the oven window and they had all sunk.  I finally gave up and made the wasc.  Turned out perfect.  I used french vanilla Betty Crocker. I really want to bake from scratch but I was running out of time so I had to go back to WASC.

I bake 3 batches and didn't have that problem. I did lower my oven temp to 320. I also use the oven strips around my pans. not sure if that helped with not making it sink..

So I finally decided to try out this white cake recipe from fromscratchsf to see what the hype was all about. I have to say, I'm hooked! I think I will actually say goodbye to Mr. Duncan Hines and use this for my white WASC. It's really not difficult to make and the taste and texture are absolutely wonderful!

Did you use the original recipe from wordpress, or the one posted in this thread by the OP?  I have not compared them, but the OP said she may have made minor modifications...  I would like to compare this "scratch" recipe with a few others I have been playing with.

Can I freeze this cake?
post #26 of 102
I use FromScratch too, I always recommend it when someone here is looking for a scratch recipe. I also use Cake Flour, I've never tried making it myself but I've read about others doing it on various blogs.

Silva-I have frozen this cake with no problems, just wrap well.

I've always had difficulties and variations in white cake recipes even tried WASC and I'm one of unluckies with it so I will give this recipe a try hopefully my search end soon...

I really like Whimsical Bake House's white butter cake.

 

I also use Colette's Brown Sugar White cake using 5 whole eggs for my vanilla cake.

 

I will have to try these other ones, though!

Aah, cake. . .the 5th food group!!

I tried FromScratchSF's white cake scratch recipe for the first time today. As my husband had said that my old Betty Crocker Silver White cake recipe was a little dry and crumbly (even with the addition of sour cream).  So I tried hers.  It was firm enough to torte,  yet had a soft mouth feel, smelled wonderful, tasted delicious, was actually white, and was not dry or crumbly.  Very nice scratch cake.;-D

 

May I recommend that you contact her about how to get a copy of her recipe.

I actually had her cake for my dinner tonight with vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream.   oh......and a diet pepsi.  :D
