I'm ready to give up, I think I've tried just about every vanilla cake recipe there is out there, but I can't seem to find that perfect one!?
I've tried Billys, fromscratchsfs, and just about everything that pops up on google under 'perfect vanilla cake'.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND, chocolate cupcakes just alway seem to turn out so much moister and softer, why can't I find the perfect vanilla cake recipe?
I'm after something incredibly soft and moist (not at all dry). I'm positive I'm not over-baking/mixing, I'm using all ingredients at room temp, and can seem to master every flavour (strawberry, chocolate, coffee, etc.. turn out wonderfully) just not vanilla!
Some things that might be causing problems: I don't really want to have to use cake flour and I use buttermilk substitute (milk + vinegar) as I sell these and I don't want to have my 'go-to' recipe to contain really expensive ingredients..
If any of you could help, suggest recipes, share secrets, I would be so very grateful!
