never made a sponge cake (and I miss Twinkies more than I can say).

I make scratch butter cakes, but it doesn't melt in your mouth.   I've posted the recipe before:

2 - 8" or 2 - 9" rounds

 

6 oz.   BUTTER  (soft)  

13 oz. SUGAR    (gran.)

 

      Beat together for five (5) mins. On Med.

 

4    EGGS    (lg.)

2 tsps. VANILLA  EXTRACT        

 

      Add: & beat on low for a few seconds to combine. Scrape bowl.  Beat on Med. 3 mins.

 

9 oz.    FLOUR A.P.    (sifted)

¾ tsp. BAKING POWDER

½ tsp. SALT

 

      Sift flour in bowl, add BP & Salt. Stir with whisk.

 

½ cup SOUR CREAM  

½ cup WHOLE MILK  

 

Add flour alternately with milk & sour cream. On Low.

1/3 flour,   milk,   1/3 flour,  sour cream,  1/3 flour.

 

Mix on medium for two minutes. 

Bake at 350 until done, start checking at 15 mins.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I found by sheer research and made it. I have been baking for many years but have never wanted to eat the mixture straight from the bowl as much as this one. And when it is cooked it is DIVINE

Celiazumbach: That's wonderful news!  So glad it worked for you.  Butter cakes are the most difficult for me.

It took a lot of experimentation to get this right.

Mmmm, I haven't had a cake with sour cream in it in a long time. Adds a little zing. Think I'll try this next time I have a free afternoon.

I was going to chime in with a recipe from Jennifer Bratko, but she has actually updated her blog page recently with a link to purchase the recipe from Etsy rather than just having it listed on her blog.

 

I would highly HIGHLY recommend picking it up once it has gone live on Etsy.  It is by far the best white/yellow/butter cake recipe I have ever had.

 

For the sake of professionalism, I am not going to repost the recipe here as she wishes it to be purchased, but you might be able to find a few posts about it floating around CC.

 

Good luck!
