White cake mix turns our better than this recipe. I only made the cake (no frosting) but the cake was not good. It raised in the oven but sank as it cooled making it very dense. It tasted like bread dough. If you're not an expert baker and want a good white cake make it from a mix or find another recipe.
Right now I have the cake in the oven. I am writing about the cake itself. The first half of the recipe was a little weird. The dough was so sticky and thick it was like making bread(which I hate to do). Not as easy as I thought. Waiting for results. Will write review after I am finished with the cake.(Note added after cake was finished...... This cake was horrible. I have no idea why the other reviewers said it was good. It tasted like nothing and was very heavy. I make at least 10 different cakes a week and this is the worst so far. Be willing to try and throw away. I did!)
This recipe is the worst baking disaster I can ever recall - Seriously. I made it for a birthday dinner and was completely embarrassed at how awful it was. Doughy and extremely dense the cake was so bad guests ate a few bites and politely said they were to full to eat any more! Don't make the same mistake I did and waste time and on making this "blue ribbon" cake!
"Heavier than usual"? The batter was like play-doh making it difficult to work with; the flavor of the finished cake was bland; and the recipe was an overall disappointment. If this is how the cake is meant to turn out I would not encourage people to make excuses for it! I was hopeful through the baking but once it cooled I found no reason to frost it and present it as a birthday cake.
I thought this recipe was absolutely simple and delicious! I did not make the frosting but it still tasted wonderful. I added about 1/2 a teaspoon of almond extract and it made a perfect blend of flavor between the vanilla. I must add that it is a bit of a heavier cake that rises in the oven and then falls a bit. I would still recommend it to anyone who loves white cakes. Please rate the frosting so I can see if I want to try it! Thank You!
