Butter Cake from Scratch

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've tried several different recipes, but can't find one that turns out well. Everytime I bake it, it comes out with that crusty top (like fried butter, lol). Does anyone have any suggestions as to what goes wrong or if anyone has alternative butter cake recipes and doesn't mind sharing, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks all.

I don't ahve any suggestions on recipes but are you baking at 325 deg instead of 350? And another possible suggestion is try putting a shallow pan of water at bottom of oven while baking, not only will your cake come out flatter (no big bulge at top) but they seem to be a little moister w/ the humidity. I would think that once you have the cake frosted it will stay pretty fresh. I hope someone w/ more experience will have some more suggestions.

I don't know what could be causing your cake to do that, but I wanted to suggest the Butter Cake recipe on the Wilton site. That one always gets good reviews for me. It's one my friend recommended to me and all her clients rave over it.

My oven is a little tricky so I have to bake at 350... Unless it is sponge cake ...

If you want to try mine, let me know. I make a soaking syrup that I brush onto the cake to make it more moist...
