A amazing cake, I would give it 10 stars if I could! I frosted it with French Silk Frosting.
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.
This cake was pretty good, but it tasted like it had too much flour. It was a little heavier than cake usually is.
Blue ribbon white cake is the best white cake
I, have ever made & eaten. This recipe deserves a
a 10. Excellent, excellent.
This cake and icing are both good, but the cake was not as fluffy as I was hoping.
