I have made various types of cakes with general success, but I constantly fail at plain white cakes, and so must embarrassingly rely on vanilla box mixes. Now, however, I'm making a cake for a major event, and refuse to use a box.
I need a vanilla cake recipe that is flavorful and sturdy, but it doesn't have to be extremely light. Please help!
(no nuts--allergic guest)
"A Better White Scratch Cake" in the recipe section is my favorite white cake recipe ever.
Hope that helped.
I will definately try the recipe, thank you for pointing it out!
For home made taste with box mix reliability, I use the doctored White Almond Sour Cream Cake recipe:
(If you don't like almond, use vanilla and/or creme bouquet.)
It's really very good
