Thank you for sharing these!! I've been dying to try some good scratch cake recipes (I've been using dr'd mixes for a long time).

Question though... where do I get white creme de cocoa??

ABC store...pretty cheap, around $8 750 ml bottle. You may be able to get a little one for 3 or 4 dollars.

You can lso just grind almonds in a food processor and then add some flour from the recipe to grind up finer. That is in essence what almond flour is, finely ground almonds. I do this any time I don't have almond flour on hand.

She is absolutely right. Just make sure 1- the almonds are peeled (little brown speck in your cake are not pretty) and 2- don't overprocess, or you will wind up with almond butter...but that's another show ....

txkat, have I mentioned that you are my hero? I know you would have won the scratch cake throwdown.

I've read a couple of reviews of the vanilla cognac, and two of the white chocolate. The double chocolate is widely used as it is very similar to an epicurious recipe ( It may be exactly the same, but it's early in the AM and I am too sleepy to go googling at the moment)

Great recipes, thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for these recipes! I got the chocolate one from Epicurious and it is my main chocolate cake recipe. My question is what filling do you use in your Vanilla Cognac cake and what flavor frosting do you use on it?
