Just wanted to share...

I made this recipe

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-4783-31-Scratch-Moist-Strawberry-Cake.html

BUT

I substituted peach jell-o and partially pureed peaches for the strawberry jell-o and strawberries then added some ginger and cinnamon. The peach flavor is subtle. It was delicious.

[quote="lanibird"]I do hope a couple good German Chocolate Cake recipes get posted here. I've been searching for a good one ever since a local place here that had the most heavenly GCC ever closed down. :quote]

I love the one from America's Test Kitchen. It's in their free recipes . http://www.americastestkitchen.com/searchform.asp There are three versions - same cake base but different fillings/frostings. My all time favorite is the coffee/cashew one. I did a taste test with all three versions and it won hands down. Even from the diehard GCC fans. The basic one is excellent too.

I second that. The GCC recipe from there is awesome and the coconut pecan filling is to die for.

The Cinnamon cake someone (sorry don't remeber the name) posted here is REALLY good. I used what the recipe said about 3 loose tsp of cinnamon. It's a bit overwhelming if you're not totally all about cinnamon, so maybe 2 would be best. Someone made a comment it kind of had a carrot cake flavor to it, so I guessed it was the strong cinnamon. But it's really good, very moist!

I'm sure with chocolate chunks or diced apple or pear in the mix...delicious!!!

funny, I was looking for a gcc recipe as well! I just made one this weekend from the box of german chocolate.. this is what my husbands mom always uses.. It didn't really make 3 good size layers and one of them BROKE... LOL but I doubled the filling and put it on the whole cake instead of just the top and sides.. then I had filling left over and i put it on to of a cupcake amde with the sour cream butter cake form the cake bible and my hubby said it is to die for! (im not a coconut fan, otherwise I would have tried it)

sour cream butter cake adapted from the cake bible

2 large eggs (original recipe calls for 4 yolks I think)
2/3 (160 grams)cup sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. (6 grams) vanilla
2 cups (200 grams) sifted cake flour
1 cup (200 grams) sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder (2.5 g)
1/2 tsp baking soda (2.5 g)
1/2 tsp salt (3.5 g)
12 Tablespoons (170 g) softened,unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees ( I always bake at 325)
In a medium bowl lightly combine the eggs, 1/4 of the sour cream and the vanilla.

In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients and mix on low speed for 30 seconds to blend.

Add the butter and the remaining sour cream.

Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are moistened. Increase to medium speed and beat for 1 1/2 minutes to aerate and develop the cake's structure. Scrape down the sides.

Gradually add the egg mixture in 3 batches, beating for 20 seconds after each addition.

Scrape down the sides. Scrape the batter into prepared pan/pans and smooth the surface with a spatula. ( She bakes it in a 9-inch springform-I used two 8-inch pans but I usually make a double batch so my family can have cupcakes

and PS. last night I ate a cupcake from this recipe topped with the coconut pecan filling from the german chocolate cake.. it was DELICIOUS

I have officially stated this cake as my all time fav yellow cake (a little lighter than my other butter cake,) I was making sylvia weinstocks yellow cake as my staple, but i dind't fold in the egg whites separately.. this makes it a lil more dense than if u do...

I am about to try LaSombra's recipe though, I want to make a tres leches cake.. I was contemplating taking the butter cake and making it tres leches. I think that woudl be tdf also, LOL


I just love cake!!!!!!!

ok, I just made tres leche cake for my birthday (it was thursday LOL) we had gotten a cake form a local bakery that I like but the cake was out of their case, not made to order, I was VERY disappointed! So, since I still wanted a tres leche cake I figured no better time than this!

LaSombra's buttermilk cake was used, the cake is VERY delicious..to me, it has a crumb similar to that of toba garrets yellow cake, it looks like it will be heavier than it turns out to be.. for the 3 leches, I used evap milk, condensed milk and cream... I didn't put enough in the cake becasue I got nervous.. so I spooned some over my piece with a mental note to put more on the layers next time.. I was thinking about trying the tres leches with the sour cream butter cake!

thank you LaSombra for posting your buttermilk cake recipe.. it was OH MY LAWD (translated umm umm good!)
