basic recipe and different flavors?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

hi!!!

I always read many different cake flavors, like: lemon, orange, coconut, coffee.. and so on..

So I was wondering if you guys have a basic recipe and just change the extract/juice!

 

I do it with the coffee cake (it's a vanilla basic cake) and it works great! I have tried a lemon cake today but it didnt taste as lemon :(

For lemon cake use the zest in the cake And make a syrup with the juice.

I'm experimenting with flavours at the moment and at first I was really over complicating everything with lots of different recipes and ingredients so I've decided to just stick with my basic and add extracts for now :) maybe 1 or 2 other ingredients but that's it. Until I have more time to experiment, at least.
