From Scratch SF's Vanilla Cake Recipe  

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
IS AMAZING!!

I've made it a few different ways (she has options in her recipe) and every way came out tasting wonderful. The cake is moist and flavorful. The cupcakes don't pull away from the wrappers. I see threads started all the time complaining about having a hard time finding a good scratch cake recipe. Look no further, people. I've tested multiple different recipes and this hits it on the head.

Visit her blog for the recipe.

I haven't tried it yet but will very soon. She is awesome and I am an avid follower of her blog.

Thank you so much for this post I just posted on this forum asking for help to make a yellow cake. I will be trying this recipe this weekend.

I, too, have made this cake and it is absolutely delicious!! It is the best white cake I've tried and it's the one I use every time I make a white cake. I use it for cake and cupcakes and get wonderful results. She put a lot of time and research into this recipe and I thank her for it (in my mind, of course) each time I use it! I also follow her blog. I've learned a lot from her and scp1127 when it comes to good cake/cupcake recipes, frostings and fillings. Any time I see their names on a post, I'm there reading it to see what else I can learn from them! I'm so glad there's lots of CCers like them to learn from.

Ditto! I, too have learned so much from scp1127, fromscratchsf, leah_s, costumeczar, MimiFix and Linda about scratch baking. My grandmother, sister and I are the ONLY people left in our family who exclusively bake from scratch. I really appreciate all of their help

I would like to try this tonight...it says 6oz of egg yolks...I came up with 9 egg yolks....Does that seem right? Or is that alot? What did you all who've tried it came up with if you could tell me? Thanks!!

From reading her post on her blog, it seems that it does take a lot of egg yolks. I personally have only made this cake with egg whites. If you are using a digital scale and it comes out to 6 oz with 9 yolks, I'm sure it's correct, but hopefully someone else who has tried it will let you know for sure. I'm curious, too, in case I do make this cake with yolks instead of whites.

Tigachu, you are sooo right! There are so many others -- too many to mention -- that have always been so helpful. That's the great thing about CC! If not for their willingness to share, I wouldn't have learned as much as I have -- but I still have a long way to go!!!

Thanks for sharing the info. I have used her recipe for SMBC and have not used anything else since. Will be trying the cake soon.

I just made the batter and got about 5 cups...Do you think it'd be okay to double or triple the batter if I need more at once?

And I'm so glad you love the recipe!

Each large egg is about 2 oz, 1 oz for the white and 1 oz for the yolk.
