SCRATCH BAKERS: Post BEST recipes!!! Part II (after crash!)

post #1 of 142
Thread Starter 
Haha, I am beginning to feel like a broken record icon_biggrin.gif. Any time I get an email notification for one of these corrupted threads I'm trying to start a new thread!!

So...here goes... Hi everyone, in case you haven't noticed, every time someone posts to an old thread that was affected by the crash (i.e. it existed before the crash but also had posts since Oct 2007), the new post gets buried amongst the corrupted pages. If someone posts a new message to the thread, you get an email message notification, but then you can't find the new post. Heath recommended that rather than try to continue to post on threads that have corrupt data, we should just start new threads.

SO I thought it might be a good time to start the Part II / Continued version of the SCRATCH BAKERS: Post your BEST recipes!!!!!!!!! thread.

Here is a link to the original thread, 26 pages of fantastic SCRATCH recipes (and tips on how to make them turn out great) dating from June '07 to Sept '07 http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=365233&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0
If you posted after Oct 13 your post is gone, and that includes the fantastic white cake bakeoff I remember...

So please, add your previously posted (after Oct 13) or new amazing scratch cakes HERE to this thread, but for anyone new to the topic, please go back to the old thread and read some of those AMAZING recipes before posting yours here, to avoid duplicates.

Note that if you dig into that old thread, pages 1-26 are intact and it APPEARS that there is a p. 27-28...but those are actually "no post exists" pages and you won't get anywhere by clicking on them. New posts made to that thread get buried on p.26 (right now), which makes them hard to dig up. (When the rest of us get the email notification, it links us to the blank pages at the end.)

Wow, this is a great thread and I'm loving it. Thank you so much for starting this again.

I found two wonderful recipes from the CC recipe index.

First one is a Carrot cake from doc_farm. It is so moist and everybody loved it. Here is the link,

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-2125-CARROT-ORANGE-CAKE-WITH-CREAM-CHEESE-FROSTING.html

Next one is called Heavenly White Cake. Sorry I don't know who posted it, but Thank You. Here is the link,

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-1171-Heavenly-White-Cake.html

I made this white cake few weeks ago and I filled it with Strawberry Curd and I mixed some curd with Ganach and covered the cake with it. It was SO Yummy.............

I make curd from a recipe from Epicurious. Here is the link if anyone want to check it out. You can use any fruit you fancy.

Do any of you have a good recipe for red velvet cake? I made one the other day and it was good, but I thought it could've been better.

ceshell,

Thanks for starting this one back up. I am always on the hunt for good new scratch recipes.

hsswoosh,

Scratch refers to not using a box mix.

Here is a simple basic chocolate cake (the only one I make) that is pretty much fail proof:

And here is my new favorite carrot-cake recipe:

I tried one on epicurious.com and I think I over cooked it. It was dry to me, and several other reviewers said their's was dry also. The two RED VELVET freaks at work said mine was at the top of their list despite being a little dry. Here it is:

Red Velvet

Thanks Trixy! I'm going to use that to make my uncle's deployment going-away cake. He's going to Iraq and red velvet is his all-time fave!

hsswoosh-scratch baking is when you don't use a mix for your cakes or other food items.

Thanks for starting this thread up again. For awesome scratch coffee-chocolate chip muffins check out recipezaar. I have people going crazy over them. (I'm horrid on a computer so I can't post the link--how bad is that icon_redface.gif )

Craftyone65, you were looking for Kate Sullivan's One Delicious Chocolate Cake. Here's the link I've found. Not tried it yet, but would like to know how intense the chocolate flavor is & what the texture is like if anyone tries it (there's a description on the page, but would like more opinions). http://lick-the-spoon.blogspot.com/

Also wondering about the flavor of the chocolate cake on the back of the Hershey's tin

Oh neat!
I never saw the old thread, I will go read as much as I can of it!

I posted some of my scratch recipes recently in the Recipe Tips and Ideas section, under the "Top Shelf" cake thread, about cakes with alcohol. There are a few box tips in there, but only because they were requested.

Once I read through I will see what I have to post!

I would love to see/have a white cake bake off..always looking for better/more white cake recipes.

Thanks--going to read now!

This is terrifac! A big Thank-You. I will be making Kate Sullivan's cake very soon for a purse cake and will let you all know how it turns out. I love it when we get recipes from books we may already have. Now, I have to try Collette's Bourbon Cake too. Oh almost forgot, I am going to be making the ginger icecream that was on the Lick the Spoon Blog.
