Mom’s Favorite White Cake
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
This cake is great when you don't need one for leftovers all week. Perfect size for a small gathering. I made the cake exactly as the recipe states, but I made a different frosting as my husband doesn't like fruit in his cake! I know I replied and rated in 2015, but I'm STILL making this cake for different occasions.
What kind of cake is this? It's basically a cupcake. I was very disappointed after spending time carefully following the recipe. The taste isn't all that great either. Not good.
I have been looking for a good homemade cake recipe for decorating cakes. This one is a good one! I used all purpose flour, taking out 1 tablespoon of flour out of each cup and substituting 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Cake held up well and tastes great. I reduced the oven temp to 325 because my oven is very hot.
SOMEONE WHO TRIED IT, PLEASE REPLY ASAP!Okay so i have never made a cake from scratch before but i have to make 2 by this upcoming Monday, i would like to know if i could just make the cake in a 13x9 pan and not add the frosting or filling because im gonna cover it with buttercream icing
Diana check two things. The age of your baking powder and the temperature of your oven. Old baking powder will cause a cake to fall every time. Also, an inaccurate oven temperature will cause serious issues with the rise.Sue StetzelField Editor Manager
I made this cake twice and both times it collapsed. I followed the recipe completely and it still collapsed in the oven. Can anyone please help me figure out why this would happen. I really want to try it again but am scared it will collapse again please if u know what I am doing wrong please let me know. Thank you
This is the best cake ever...we love it.
I baked this in an 8 inch square cake pan for twenty minutes and it went well. Good cake; I will definitely make this again.
This is a great cake! Very light and fluffy! I doubled it to make a 9x13 and added a tablespoon of lemon zest and a teaspoon of lemon juice to make a lemon cake. Wonderful! I am going to use this recipe for my sister-in-law's wedding cake.
Around 10 yrs ago my daughter found this recipe in a magazine and made this cake for me on Mother's Day. It became a family favorite. She recently relocated and I will now learn to make it myself. Is the best cake I've ever tasted!!!!!!
