Every time I try this recipe I get an inch-high ultra dense cake. It tastes good, but I would never serve it to people given that the presentation is abysmal. I don't get all the hype about this cake. I just end up going back to my no-fail chiffon that everyone loves. I would like to have some diversity for my vanilla cakes.
What am I doing wrong? Is there another recipe that someone could suggest?
I'm not sure what you are doing wrong, but I love this cake. Turns out perfect every time.
Have you seen the "great yellow cake scratch off" that we had last year. Here's a link to it.
There is a lot of great info and troubleshooting about different scratch yellow recipes that we all tried and critiqued.
I've never had any success whatsoever with any of her recipes. I've tried time and time again, but they never turn out very well.
Tsal & Tootie, I thought it was just me but I've tried a number of her recipes and I've never had success with her's either. Someone told me to get her newer book because it's better but I'm loving Sylvia Weinstock recipes which always work for me so I think I'll skip Rose's. I'm happy for those who get them to work but I am not able to have any luck.
