I have been searching for this cake for about two years now. In my experience, making white cake at home is just never as good as the bakery. (Sorry! I know some of you just cringed reading that.)
I am not kidding when I tell you that this recipe is it. The flavor is fantastic and the texture is truly perfection. Even the-pickiest-dessert-eater-ever, aka my hubby, loved it.
And I know you will too. As I noted in the recipe I found this cake on epicurious who got it from Cooks Illustrated. I have never been led astray with either of those sources so I am confident you will find the same success I did!
One major adaptation I did was using 8-in cake pans. The original recipe calls for 9-in and about 5 minutes less cooking time. If you plan on using 9-in plans please do consult the original recipe. The first time I made it I used 8-in cake pans with no time adaptation and was not as successful.
Do you have a perfect white cake in your life?
