I’ve had a couple cakes that I completely loved and I’ve been trying to find a recipe for a couple years. I’ve found a few threads on this forum that have discussed something similar. It does seem like what I’m looking for is what many others are trying to avoid.
i love a moist, heavy but also grainy white cake. To be honest I like most cakes and fluffy is good, dense is also good but I have never been able to find a grainy recipe. Seems like a moist cornbread consistency is more what I want.
I’ve baked a bunch of recipes with a lot of great tasting cakes but typically they are smooth and fluffy. Good, and probably what I need most of the time but i’m Still in search of that one texture.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Recipes and ideas are welcome.
Thanks for the help
No, I have never had a cake with the texture of cornbread. Seems to be it would be dry and crumbly.
Just watching a “Duff-ace of cake” recent episode It was mentioned that in the cake they were making almond flour was used because it was a little more dense Just an idea that might work for you - might be just what you need for your coarse cake
Madeira cake might be what you are after. It’s a traditional British cake. It’s definitely coarser and heavier than American cakes. It can be a bit dry but a simple syrup would fix that.
