Has anyone made this Cook's Illustrated White Layer Cake - Page 4

Had great success with FromScratchSf white cake. I recently subbed the sourcream, buttermilk & butter with natural yoghurt as an experiment....turned out great.

I also tried doubling it, because if a recipe can't be doubled it has limited value to me. Every time I made it after the first time, especially when doubling, it fell in the middle and had a funny rubbery dense layer along the bottom. Since then (I didn't try it in the original test,) I have discovered "A better White cake" by Jennifer Bratko from the website fromscratchsf@wordpress.com It is wonderful, light, tasty and doubles just fine. It is just as good as the cook's illustrated, if not better, and is reliable. Look no further!



I have the same problem when doubling this recipe. It gets heavy like there is too much butter or something. I love this recipe as is I just wish I found a way to double it with success. I'm definitely going to try the recipe by fromscratchsf. I'm not big on vanilla cake so for me to enjoy it, it really has to be good.

I google, a lot.



Yep, nothing. Nothing except FromScratch or BeyondButtercream and CC postings...

I google a lot too...I think SCP1127 has the super-ultra-google version of Google.

Links please? I'm curious.

Love FromScratchSF cakes.

Am I crazy? There are posts from bloggers and a full gallery on images. And all of the CC posts are always good, so quite a bit. The bloggers talk about this recipe from a bakery in SF and give their opinions.

You know, the same thing happened with google when my grandmother was dying a few weeks ago. I found treatments on google and was directing my mom six hours away on where I got the information. She finally went to the library and the librarian couldn't pull it up. And no, my 70 year old mom does not have email so I couldn't send links. And no internet on the phone. The other relatives wouldn't help my mom and my grandmother died without the information about the procedure that would have saved her life. Obviously I'm not speaking to those lazy relatives who just didn't have the time while they waited in a hospital room for two weeks while she died... that is after I called them a few names. I actually couldn't go to the funeral after what I said. Imagine that.

So this is odd. I swear I found them.
