Oh!..i found some more vanilla cake recipe a that requires self raising flour, we don't ve much of that around here and if u find it, it's way too expensive!.how do I convert to all purpose flour and will it come out as nice?
post #18 of 38
Most likely it will not come out as (nice as) the one from the recipe since self-rising flour is meant for baking, it is made softer than all purpose, and has baking powder added.

To replace self raising flour, add 2 teaspoons of baking powder to 1 cup (150g) of all-purpose flour, this is an approximate.

Take care,
Cin

Could you do the very light, very awesome scratch WASC on this site and instead of almond, put in vanilla?? 

 

I tried this one and it was great!! Very light and moist (that word again!!)

My Oh My.......Mimi I just made your Yellow Cupcake recipe from your book.   It's yellow because of the egg yolks but it's VANILLA flavored.   I'd call it Vanilla Cupcakes. 

 

They were delicious, soft,  fragrant, nice texture.  We've been eating them right out of the pan without frosting.  They don't need any.  I think you could sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top and they'd be wonderful.  Could you do that before you put them in the oven?

I've been using the same vanilla cake recipe for awhile and it never failed.

If you want a cinnamon sugar topping, definitely add before baking. Oven heat melts the sugar and creates a slight crunch.

 

This recipe began life as my basic yellow sheet cake. It's still my go-to recipe when I want a fast and easy vanilla cake.

Mimi, that looks so good. What is the name of your book? (I've just spent the past half hour doing random searches online with your name but haven't found anything).

Thank you Claire, the recipe is in my third book, The (Faux) Pastry Chef: How I Found My Baking Fix. It's a memoir with a few recipes. Click on the Bookshelf link in my signature below, to read about it.

BUTTERMILK DONUTS:  love those old fashioned buttermilk donuts with the thin glaze of icing.

 

I made a second batch of your vanilla cupcakes, added a big tsp.of Cinnamon, an rounded half tsp of Mace, put them in a jumbo cupcake pan, baked longer at a lower temp (350 f.)...........Put a thin drizzle of glace corn syrup (cookie) icing on the tops while they were still warm............................

♦wowie kazowie were they good, and they tasted just like buttermilk donuts. ♦

I'm thinking that if they needed to be dressed up, a nice compliment to the flavor would be white chocolate Modeling Chocolate.  I'll play with some decorations for the tops. (if there's any left tomorrow.) :P

MB, this variation sounds delicious. We're getting hit with that big snowstorm tomorrow; buttermilk muffin donuts should be hot from my oven mid-storm.
