Ok, so nice response from all you vanilla fans out there. I too happen to love vanilla – and as I get older I think I enjoy it even more than chocolate. Strange. You go from loving certain things as a child, and it all changes so much as we age. I now like gorgonzola, olives, pistachios and port. Who knew such changes were to come. Anyway, back to vanilla. So Andy liked this cake. It is very moist. Very flavorful. Now that I think about it, it was Greg’s favorite too. Came home for break for a minute (or so it felt) and agreed with Andy. I made a simple glaze with confectioners sugar, milk, vanilla and a dash of kosher salt and it was perfect.
As suggested before, please weigh your flour. Try it. So many write in saying their cakes are dry – this is probably why. Just check it out here.
I got this recipe from Joy The Baker. She has a great blog and book now (I think) and her write up is perfect and I made no changes. She frosted hers with chocolate buttercream – so try that too if you like.
everybody’s birthday cake:
