I like the white batter
post #4 of 31
My favorite....
To a white cake mix, add a 4 serving box of pudding (I usually use french vanilla or my fav is white chocolate), 4 egg whites, 1 t. clear vanilla, 1 c. sour cream, 1/2 c. water and 1/3 c. oil. This will be think and the cake comes out dense and durable and very yummy!

It's yields a little more than the a box mix. I made a 1/2 sheet the other day and used 2 of these. Like I said, the white chocolate pudding is my favorite to add in.

mamafrogcakes, when you're not making a white cake do you go ahead and put in 4 whole eggs?

You know it's funny that you say that because I thought about that the other day. It's always been a habit with this recipe to just use the egg whites. The white chocolate vanilla always turns out a little off white, not pure white. I guess you could though! Never tried it! Bikegal, you do it and let me know! I hate separating and wasting egg yolks anyway!

I've used that exact recipe, and it's really good! Everyone always loves it. I've added 2 whole eggs and 2 whites, by mistake, and it just came out a little more yellow.

Mamafrogcakes, do you use any particular fillings with it? It has a distinctive taste, and so far I've used it with raspberry, plain buttercream, and nutella. I tried it with bavarian cream once, and it just had a funny flavor combination, but I'm not sure. Some people liked it anyway.

What I've always done for fillings with this cake is use Marida's Mousse (got off Sugarcraft's website), which is a box of pudding an 2 c. whipping cream. I usually use the same pudding that I used in the cake. If I don't use that then I'll usually use a "normal" flavor rather than something different. Luckily I haven't had any requests for different flavors! The white chocolate in the cake is so good I think it tastes better with plain BC and I can see how other flavors would be strange!

So, how difficult is it to find white chocolate pudding?

I'm in TX and most of my grocery stores have it. I usually buy it at Walmart.

good, I'll start shopping. And thanks so much for all your information! I'm making a wedding cake for some friends in May 2006 - so I'll be making some "trial" cakes. I'm always open for suggestions if you can think of any helpful hints.
