Taste Test Results!! - Page 5

ooh how is that sweet potato cake?? and can you tell me about the banana cake - is it like banana bread or different? I've been asked to make a strawberry layer & banana layer cake & was asking for recipes - totally didn't look at my own recipe books!!!! duh! Just wondered how it tastes though.

imartsy - how often did you check cupcakes to see if they were ready? I have found that when I bake from scratch I tend to overestimate how long it takes to cook. I start 10 minutes before the recommended cooking time and check every couple of minutes. I rarely cook it for as long as the directions indicate. It's a pain to stand there and babysit the oven but I never have dry anything anymore. HTH!

The sweet potato cake is great, if you like carrot cake you will love it. If I don't tell people they think it's carrot cake. You can make it it a bundt pan or layer cake. The recipe calls for marg but I use butter. Very easy recipe.
The banana cake is good too, very moist and lots of banana flavor. The recipe calls for 3 bananas.

daranaco,

Thanks - I usually wait for a little browning to occur on top - maybe that's my problem - maybe white cake shouldn't do that. I also usually use a tester - even w/ cupcakes I'll stick a little "cake tester" in to make sure it doesn't come out gooey.... maybe I need to "underbake" it a little - not really under baked, but just watch it more carefully and not wait for browning to occur....
