Not only do you need to post the recipe that you used. You need to tell us exactly how you mixed the batter step by step. What temperature did you set your oven, did you use an oven thermometer to see if your oven is accurate. What kind of flour did you use? Did you weight your ingredients? If not how did you measure it?

Scratch cakes can be done. If you are complete newbie to baking then you should start with box cake mix and get used to all the ways of baking and the exact steps and science to it.

After you make a couple of those and after you read a lot about making cakes from scratch (start at your local library), you will get the hang of it. Right now there is not information here to choose from.

In my humble opinion, baking is an art and not a science. I do not adhere to the notion that everything has to be so absolutely precise for baking. I don't even measure the vanilla that I put in. I do loosly follow recipes, but the day I stress about how precisely I'm measuring and time my mixing to the second is the day that baking will no longer be fun. I don't even own a kitchen scale. I "eyeball" my ingredients all the time and check my cake doneness the same way. Don't stress about baking, tabtab. You'll get the hang of it and love it.

tastyart; im so happy to hear that im not the only one. i never have been one to follow directions for anything, im much more inclined to "wing it". im a scratch bake, and the majority of my things turn out, and i dont have the time or effort to measure things precisely! totally agree that it would suck all the outta caking! lol

I swear by WASC I have made both straight cake mixes as well as scratch and the only one that is always consistent no matter how you do it is WASC. I made Chocolate Fudge Almond Sour Cream cake this afternoon it was perfect! Always is!

White Almond Sour Cream (cake)

If you hold your cursor over words that have that dotted line under it, it will pop up a window and tell you the definition. HTH

hello fellow experimenters !!!!! Don't get me started on the atrocities that i have committed against GANACHE !!!! icon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif through my experimenting I have found a way to turn basic ganache into a frosting that is to die for!! I thought about contributing it to the recipes but was afraid the ganache police might get me. icon_lol.gificon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gif
