Does yellow butter cake taste kinda like cornbread? - Page 2

post #16 of 18
I've made cakes that tasted like corn bread too... several recipes, in fact.

My question is... *what* causes that? is it the butter (I only use unsalted)? the mixing process? over-mixing? is it over-baked?

That's a good queston, cause I have never heard of the "cornbread" taste before. This is the first time. Anyone know? I'm just curios. icon_biggrin.gif

I had never heard of the cornbread taste thing either until I discovered this site, but this weekend I tried Whole Foods cupcakes for the first time. I was curious to see what Whole Foods bakery cakes tasted like because they are decorated so nicely. They were dry, tough and tasted like frosted corn muffins. Yuck.
