BUT, my vanilla cakes always turn out horrible.
they are all bread-like and plasticky, and taste not-so-good.
I have tried Joy of Baking video recipe (exactly), and Good Housekeeping tested recipes, both times were a horrible waste of materials.
Does anyone know what I could be doing wrong?
Just in case...
i did make sure the eggs, milk and butter were room temperature.
The only thing that I did differently was add 5 medium sized eggs when the recipe called for 4 large.
