Overbaking would result in a dry cake.

Overmixing can cause too much gluten production and result in a rubbery texture. icon_sad.gif

Here's an expanded flavors WASC recipe:


When I make the WASC cake, I mix all the liquid/wet ingredients in one bowl then add the dry ingredients (which I have previously sifted together). Then mix only for the time recommended.
