Suggestions for making a moist white cake??

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Has anyone had any luck finding a recipe for a white cake that is moist? If so, would you please share it? I'm having a really hard time finding one and my experiments aren't exactly succeeding... Thanks!!!

i have the book-cakemix doctor and for white cake it says to add whole eggs instead of just the whites. i tried this and the cake was yummy and moist! icon_lol.gif

I also add the whole eggs to the white cake mix, I also add 1/2 cup of oil instead of a 1/3 of a cup. And if you can get it a teaspoon of butter vanilla to each cake mix. I also bake a 325 instead of 350 it takes a little longer but i have had nothing but good results. My butter vanilla is made by magic line. It really makes a difference.
Hope that helps

Yes...butter-vanilla smells like it sounds. Sometimes I even think it almost smells "rum"-ish. But it's good. It's an emulsion...I get mine at my local cake supply store. You only need a little, thus the tsp. measurement, because it is thick and concentrated.

It's wonderful!!! I've gotten it on my clothes several time and I've gotten nothing but compliments about how good I smell. But honestly it is an amazing product.

try this recipe... http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/102696
it's so moist and yummy. it's the only white cake i make now. it has cream of coconut in it, but you really can't taste the coconut flavor. i don't usually use the cream cheese frosting it calls for, just my usual buttercream. delish!!

I use the White Almond Sour Cream cake from this website and everyone raves over it.

I second the vote for the recipe krystalp suggested with the cream of coconut. I use that same exact recipe and it makes a perfect white cake IMO.

I had the BEST white cake in my life this weekend! The girl who made it said it was her own recipe. All I know is she did add some egg yolks to it and I believe she said she melted her butter. She also added a mixture of buttermilk and sour cream. Everyone at the party said it was like a piece of heaven! I wish I had the recipe icon_sad.gif

I always add a small package of white chocolate pudding to each cake box and only use Duncan Hines. It has been a proven winner each time for me icon_smile.gif

I use the Epicurious recipe as well, and it is awesome! Super moist and you cannot taste the coconut. Yummy!!

I use Sylvia Weinstock's white cake recipe for scratch white cakes. I'm pretty sure I've posted the recipe here before.
