FromScratch: Thank you SO MUCH for the info. I am reading part 2 now of your white cake blog posts. I am eager to try your recipe. Thanks again!

Also, I used the recipe that was mentioned first and foremost on the page. I didn't do any of the possible suggestions throughout the thread. The only thing I changed was using butter instead of shortening.

In short, a year ago I read thru this entire thread, took notes on everyone's suggestions, but it came down to me converting from volume to weight, re-working the recipe based on bakers percentages and then re-doing the leavening based on the weight of the flour. Then I wrote a blog post about it, and so far only a few people have posted problems, and those are from people that didn't follow the recipe or my instructions.

So give it a try - its a great base recipe!

You'll love From Scratch's white cake recipe. I use it all the time now for my go to white cake. Soooo good!!! And I follow her directions to the "T". I've used homemade vanilla and I've used what is called a Princess flavoring as it's one of my niece's favorite white cake flavors, and the cake is fabulous no matter what flavoring I use. Personally...I love it with the homemade vanilla! Definitely give it a try and follow her directions, and you'll be happy you did!

You'll want to read all 3 parts to the white cake, though. Very good information in all 3. I enjoyed reading all about her search for the best white cake and as stated above, it is now my go to white cake. Love it, love it, love it!

I saw your blog and wow, you rock!!! I didnt' try the cake recipe, but what I got interested on your SMB. For some reason I've always been afraid of SMB, but last night I tried it following your tutorial and it was....YAAAYYYY PERFECTO!!!! sorry, I'm not yelling just got excited icon_biggrin.gif no, honestly I'm stoked. I've never, ever had something work so perfectly the first time. Your notes and instructions are perfect and my SMB was not only delicious but beautiful and glossy...now, a question. I made it last night and put in the fridge, I will bring it to room temp today, but do I re-whip?? for some reason it does not look smooth today and a bit grainy. Please advice.

Thanks a million!!! I love your blog! thumbs_up.gif

Totally welcome, but this thread is about the WASC, lets not get derailed with SMBC! I'll PM you about your question.

maybe that's a silly question, but where is the almond in this recipe? or does the "almond" in WASC stand for "white like almond"? ... I'm confused icon_wink.gif

one who says nothing tastes as good as skinny feels has obviously never tried one of my cakes.

The almond refers to the almond extract added for flavoring. Some people use all vanilla instead. Sometimes I use vanilla only, sometimes I add half the amount of almond plus the vanilla, and sometimes I use vanilla extract and vanilla bean paste. It's all good!

does anyone have the link to the scratch gourmet flavors thread?

Just wondering how does this recipe compare to the mix version of WASC? (the texture, crumb, etc.)

Has anyone successfully modified this into a banana WASC?
