Your go-to Chocolate Cake recipe - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Hi atudor4, so I made your chocolate cake recipe today. I realy like it but I did add a little more cocoa pd. The batter was yummy,the cake had a good taste and texture, dense enough for a wedding cake, it also rose well in the pan.
I would love to know if you have a white cake recipe from pastry school that calls for high ratio shortening also. Would you be will to share that? Thanks so much. I would love to try it!

Yay! I'm so glad it worked for you. It's my fav. I do have a white cake recipe and I'd love to share!!
12oz cake flour
.75oz baking powder
.25oz salt
6oz high ratio shortening
15oz sugar
6oz skim milk
.18oz vanilla ext
.09oz almond ext
6oz skim milk
8oz egg whites
Like the choc fudge cake, you add the 1st 8 ingredients then combine liquids & add alternately to batter.
I've not made this yet so please let me know how it turns out. I do have another one from my teacher(recipe above is from my text book).

I have a similar recipe for a white cake.  Do you know if this one will be sturdy enough for a three tiered cake.  I know I have to stack it with structure, but I just want to make sure it will not fall appart under the fondant?

 

Sincerely,

 

Rolly Polly!!!!

Question... What is High Ratio Shortening?

post #26 of 27
I like the flavor of adding coffee to the cake, but does it keep the caffeine when you cook it? It do a lot of kid cakes and want to know.

No, caffeine does not cook out like alcohol. But you can use decaf. :)
