Hey, I just made a cake this weekend using a similar recipe.... I used a white cake mix, milk, oil and egg whites and mine was the same way. The customer wanted an 11x15x2 chocolate cake with an 11x15x2 white cake on top and buttercream in between. Everything was fine until I went to put the white cake on top and it crumbled in my hands....like into 8 pieces and when I was picking it up it was crumbling away. It was also a moist, delicious cake....just a crumbly one!!! I was baffled. I just pieced it together on top of the chocolate cake and hoped that the buttercream held it together...which it did, but I wonder how it was when they cut into it. I wanted to re-bake but didn't allow any time to do so. Let me know what y'all find out. Oh- I used 2 cake mixes and 2 1/2 cups of 2% milk.

This is so weird isn't it! I used 1%milk, so I guess the type of milk doen't matter. Good luck on your experiments!

Hi ladies...I use a similar recipe but do 1/3c butter and 1 1/3 cup liquid (milk or buttermlk)...it doesn't come out so crumbly. I'm anxious to see what Ladycake finds out. It is a super moist cake. icon_smile.gif

Ok guys this is my thoughts on this ....

I made the other cake today like I said I was going to do... This time I did it with 1 stick of butter 1 1/3 cups milk 3 large whole eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla and this one was not crumbly... So I think that there was not enought liquid in the other one that is why it was crumbly and I think that eggs may have had some to do with it too... So try it that way and see what you think ... it was tasty and not as dry and it was not crumbly....


Tomorrow I will try and take photos so you can see....

I used the Cake Doctor recipe for the butter cake for my godson's cake and it was so crumbly that I was embarassed at the party! Other times I have made the same recipe and it was perfectly fine.

Another time I used the chocolate cake recipe in the same book and the same thing happened. So is the trick to just add 1/3 cup of milk extra? I lost sleep over this!!!
