SCRATCH BAKERS: Post BEST recipes!!! Part II (after crash!) - Page 6

post #76 of 142
1-2-3-4 is NOT a recipe, but applies to a type of cake. There are many different variations of this, and Mermaid Bakery yellow cake (WTH is yellow cake anyway? Yellow is a color, NOT a cake) is simply a variation on this. I didn't like The MB cake.

en-passant, can you link me to other variations of the 1-2-3-4 cake? Been looking for it, don't know what or how to search for it. TIA!

Every 1234 cake I've had is citrus. Maybe that's a southern variation

It basically starts with:

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
4 eggs

...Hence the 1-2-3-4.

I seen recipes with 3 eggs, or 2½ C flour, or 1 3/4 C sugar, or whatever. They're all just variations on the theme.

It's a ratio, very simple to follow and remember and tweak from there. Paula Dean uses it.

so if you gonna do different versions of it, what will you change? the extract and the milk? I tried googling it before didn't find any variations.

I don't think there are variations exactly because it's not just one recipe. And yes, you would change the extract and the liquid. Careful though because liquids with different densities will bake differently. And if you are using a sweetened liquid you will have to remove some sugar, too.

Honestly, I find Serious_Cake's recipe much easier to tweak and I like the texture better.

I am so happy there is a scratch cake discussion. I LOVE scratch cakes! I'm gonna try that 1-2-3-4 recipe & see what I come up with. Hopefully we all come up with a lot of ideas. Question, where can I find Serious_Cakes recipe?
post #86 of 142
Sorry to hear that, AKA! I didn't even think to look at your location.

Serious Cakes recipe is on youtube. Search "Yellow Cake Recipe" and it's the first one to pop up icon_smile.gif
