White Scratch Cake Results

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Okay, so like everyone else I've been trying to find the "Perfect" white scratch cake. I made 3 cakes in the last 2 days and I put them side by side for visual, texture, and flavor. Here's what my opinion is:

Cake Bible "White Velvet Butter cake"
This cake has a nice white color but I found the texture to be very fine and dry compared to the other 2 cakes I made.

Toba Garrett's "Moist Yellow Cake" (very similiar to the White cake posted here by Sugarflowers except Garrett's cake has more eggs to produce the "yellow" so you could reduce the eggs to 2 and have a white cake).
This cake was very moist but still slightly dense and runs in 2nd place for me.

Whimsical Bakehouse "White Butter Cake"
I LOVE this cake. If you are used to boxed mixes, this one has a wonderful light texture, white color and is very moist. I think I have found the "white" cake I will be using.

I have also made the chocolate chip cake and the orange cake in this book and they are both wonderful! I can't wait to try the Yellow and Chocolate butter cakes.

Thanks for the in-depth reviews, Jacqui. icon_smile.gif

It's very time consuming to make all the cakes one would like to for comparison purposes......

So thanks for the heads-up, sounds like the WBH is the one for me, too. thumbs_up.gif

Thank you ladyonzlake for posting your results, it is really helpful to get people's input on recipes. I am a fan of the WBH recipes too, I use their book a lot but had not tried their white cake, so I will be sure it try it out soon.

I just tried the white butter cake recipe last night. It was great! Very light and moist. Just heavenly!! Not like the one I was using which was a little on the dry side. It had a slight angel food cake texture. Me and my husband have a new favorite. This is my new White cake recipe. Thanks again!!!!

ok, WBH white butter cake makes 9 cups of batter, do you all make that much or cut it in half. I want to bake this cake, but I only want to try it. Two 10X3 cakes will be tooooooooo much for my family to eat. I don't want to alter the taste, so what can I do?

Make the cake and freeze it for a later date when you are too tired to make a cake.
