French Vanilla cake recipe (scratch) needed... please

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello,
Does anyone have a scratch French Vanilla cake recipe they'd be willing to share? I can only find scratch vanilla cakes online.

Also: Is there any such thing as a scratch "stable" white cake? All the recipes I've tried are yummy, yet crumbly. For some reason, my chocolate cake recipe is much more stable.

thanks ~ icon_cool.gif

I may be a little on the simple side icon_redface.gif , but....what's the difference between plain old vanilla and 'french' vanilla? When I've tasted things labeled 'french' vanilla I've always thought they just had a more intense vanilla flavor, but othewise the same. I'd love an explanation if anyone has one to offer.

The WASC is really good and you could add french vanilla coffee creamer to enhance the flavor. It does start out with the box mix but you put so many other ingredients in it, it tastes homemade.
Also, Duncan Hines makes a French Vanilla box mix that has a butter recipe on the box that adds additional ingredients. It've quite good.

French Vanilla- Originally a type of custard based vanilla ice cream. Usely it has a stronger vanilla flavor, includes egg yokes and possibily vanilla seeds. So a French Vanilla cake could be made by using extra vanilla in standard yellow cake recipe. I would use double the amount of Vanillla Paste in any simple cake recipe that you like. That's what I do with my Busy Day Cake recipe. There's nothing fancy about it. But call it a Artisan Vanilla Bean Cake and most people think it's great.

thanks icon_smile.gif ... odd though that there isn't any vanilla in this recipe.

There is actually a french vanilla extract blend. I use it a lot. And in the recipe is it 1C butter or 1/2 C butter? Please be clear.
Let me check the brand of the flavoring and I will let you know.

If you read it carefully, it is both regular and add the melted in the end.

Oops my mistake. I add 3 tbsp French Vanilla blend because I love the flavor. This recipe was given to me by a friend...honestly don't know why it also has melted butter but I just follow the recipe and it turns out good.

I found this one and it looks pretty good!

This cake recipe is the maximum quantity for your 5 quart mixing bowl. It mixed up perfect in the Kitchen Aid Accolade. It yielded 15 1/2 cups cake batter.

2 Duncan Hines Butter Recipe cake mixes (I guess you could use any flavor)
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
4 Sticks Butter (I used half butter, half margarine)
2 2/3 cups water
6 eggs
1 box French Vanilla Pudding Mix (instant)
2 tsp Baking Powder

Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, mix until blended. Add cake mix, pudding, flour and baking powder. Blend on low while drizzling in water in a thin stream. Mix until smooth (doesn't take long), and bake according to directions for your pan size. I had to share this because it turned our so good. I hope someone else enjoys!!
