I need a great, dense, spice cake recipe for a wedding cake for this weekend!! Any help out there? I tried a box spice cake mix and it was awful and I don't want it associated with my name. I've tried a couple of recipes, but they are too light and fluffy.

Help please!!

Thanks!!

You're welcome, Dyan! icon_biggrin.gif I would definitely read the reviews before making the filling (if you're making it) There are suggestions there as well as issues that people had with it.

Bailey's Chocolate Irish Cream Cake......I know that it is not exactly from scratch, but I don't know what adjustments I would have to make to eliminate the cake mix. It is a favorite of many of my friends.

the recipe on the back of the german chocolate baking bar has been given a "Third" thumbs up in this thread! The frosting on it is to die for too!

DEEP, RICH CHOCOLATE CAKE

*Chef Ed Kasky uses Callebaut semisweet chocolate for the cake and Guittard French-vanilla chocolate for the frosting, but any fine-quality semisweet chocolate will produce a wonderful result in either.



Just wanted to say a quick "Thank You" for the Epicurious website. I'd never heard of it before this thread. Found a great Salmon recipe on there last night. My family was happy thumbs_up.gif

I just made the Shubox's white coconut cake and it was fantabulous!! Also tried the Hershey's chocolate cake at the back of the can and it was fantastic as well. Now I remember why scratch baking is so much better!! It's been years since I've done this and I'm glad I found this thread thumbs_up.gif

Hey- did any of you see the birthday card that showed a cat scratching himself and he was saying " I wanted to make you a birthday cake from scratch"...then in the inside.." I scratched all day, but still didnt have enough to make a cake!" LOL...okay, that's really lame!! icon_lol.gif I'm sorry!! This "from scratch" thread just made me think of it!!

I'm adding a cake recipie too!! icon_biggrin.gif
This cake is pretty dense, and I think it would be great for carving...it's really really moist, and has great taste and texture!! Now I want some!!!

2.5 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1/4 cup cinnamon...I would definately cut this back!! It was quite noticable!!
1 stick margarine
4 oz. vegetable oil
1 cup water
1/3 cup cocoa, dutch process is the best!!!
4 oz buttermilk
2 eggs
1/3 cup applesauce
1 cup sugar

1. Sift first four ingredients into mixing bowl
2. stir margarine, oil, water, and cocoa together in saucepan
3. Heat on low until melted
4. Mix buttermilk, eggs, and applesauce together, Add sugar.
5. Add sifted ingredients to egg mixture. Beat until all lumps are gone.
6. Using rubber spatula, slowly stir cocoa mixture into batter.
7. Pour batter into greased and flowered pan, and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes...

This makes enough batter for (2) 8" square pan.

I hope you can use this, it has such a great texture!!! Just make sure you cut down the cinnamon or else that's pretty much all you can taste!!
