SCRATCH BAKERS: Post your BEST recipes!!!!!!!!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 425
I second the recipes that brittanydear posted!!! that one with coco lopez is wonderful...and the choc cake is my most requested.

I use a white cake from here... "a better white scratch cake" in the CC recipe section... very consistent... I usually add some more flavoring to it depending on what people have asked for... but it's a great moist cake and easy to make.

I am a scratch baker, never baked a cake mix. I search for great recipes in books and the internet.

my favorites (I'm at work, can't type them all out):

WBH banana cake
WBH chocolate butter cake
WBH golden butter cake

From the Essential Guide to Cake Decorating:

Madeira cake (I like to add champagne to this recipe and make champagne frosting) customers love it.

From the Essential Guide to Baking:

chocolate cake, the jam in the recipe makes it so moist.

Wow, the one with the coco lopez creme sounds delicious. But, would it still be considered a white cake if it has egg yolks? I thought that white cakes only used egg whites. I will definitely try. Any recipes by Toba Garrett are great (can't post, copyright issues) but I think that her chocolate ganache and chocolate icing are both posted in www.epicurious.com with her permission so you can check it there.

Thanks for the thread.

the coco lopez is a lighter yellow cake IMO.

I made a bride three cakes to sample and used a yellow, a white and that one for an in-between. LOL


I would love to hear from anyone who uses the cooks illustrated white and yellow!! those are my next to try!

I love the sweet potato cake from the Foodnetwork, the one by Cassandra Thomas.

Red velvet cake, the one here on CC, Sarah's recipe.
Mango cake, from CC.

I get asked for this cake at least 1 out of every 3 orders and I get asked by my family way too much. I think we have single handedly with this recipe killed more diets than we've ever dreamed of trying!

tyty -

Which red velvet cake is that? I went through the recipe archives, and none use the name Sarah on it.

Also, there are two mango cakes - do you use the one that says "with filling" or the other one?

And thanks to all who have posted so far.

Thanks!

My best scratch recipes are Toba Garrett's Moist butter cake and Slyvia Weinstocks's Classic yellow cake. First of all, Always have ingredients at room temperature. Don't overmix when adding flour. (And that would be SOFTASSILK cake flour) Nothing works better. And I always use Watkins Vanilla.

How do you find new recipes for cakes? My family has been box bakers my entire life (I remember my sister just a couple years ago being surprised it was possible to make a cake without a box mix- seriously), but I want to make cakes that don't taste like boxes. I've seen descriptions of cakes that sound absolutely divine, but have no idea where to start finding a recipe for them.

Just take a look on-line.. allrecipes.com and epicurious.com are a good place to start. I look here.. as here in the recipe section. Take a trip to the library and look in some cake books if they have some and any book store will have cake books too. Just don't be afraid to try.. if it comes out wrong.. try again. It takes practice.. but it's fun.. for me anyway.. LOL.

You can Google to get Toba Garrett's "Moist yellow cake and Classic Yellow cake By Slyvia Weinstock" Just type in "Classic Yellow cake" And "Moist yellow cake" Make sure they're The ones made by these Bakers.
