I just made a couple variations of this recipe this past weekend. The first one I substituted cherry flavoring for the almond extract and on the seconed one I substituted orange extract for the almond extract. They both turned out great and were absolutely delicious. I used IMBC on both and on the cherry cake I topped it with a chocolate ganache. On my talk about delicious.
Hey Tolinda I am not sure about making it lighter. I think it would make it more dense. And don't know if it would raise like an angel food cake is suppose to. This is just my opinion and I don't know for sure what it would do.
Someone asked about pudding in the batter. I have added pudding each time I've made the cake and they've turned out wonderfully.
I would ask for opinions on this, though - I've been asked to do a Key Lime cake for a friend of mine for her anniversary (they had a key lime cake for their wedding cake). I thought I would tweak this recipe by adding key lime juice and then making a key lime curd for the filling. Any other thoughts, suggestions??
From what I can see this is basically the same recipe as using the cake mix extender other than adding the almond flavoring. I have not tried this recipe as yet but use the extender all the time. I also don't understand the need of putting pudding in the cake. If it is really good like it is, why the pudding?
I'm thankful that someone pointed out the use of the almond extract for those allergic to nuts. I had never thought about that. I use it in my BC all the time.
The next cake I do I will use this recipe. I printed it long ago and just haven't tried it.
Lord, If you can't make me thin, please make my friends fat.
Ok I went ahead and tried it with my other recipe. I haven't tasted the cake yet. But tasted the extra cupcakes I made with the batter. They taste ok. They are even more dense than the original WASC recipe. I am going to decorate the cake tonight fo DH for Valentines day. So we will know tomorrow how the actual cake turned out. Like I said though it seems extremely dense.
