READ THIS REVIEW, not the most popular ones! -- I don't know what it is with this cake. Some reviewers rave over it. Some reviewers say it turned out dry. The secret, they say, is adding extra milk (1 1/2 cups total in a doubled recipe), extra vanilla (2T in doubled recipe), and beating the fire out of it when creaming the sugar/butter & adding the eggs. Well, I am on the lookout for the perfect white cake recipe, and this one was recommended to me, so I decided to try it out when I was asked by a friend to provide the cake for her birthday party. I avidly read reviews, followed the above instructions to a T, and kept my fingers crossed. I even subbed vanilla bean paste for the vanilla, creating some truly phenomenal cake batter. Unfortunately, once baked, the cake did indeed turn out dry and crumbly. Edible, for sure, but disappointing. So, it sounds like this cake is a shoot, pure and simple, -- you may or may not be one of the unlucky ones for whom it fails!
