How to make it
- Sift all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Stir with a whisk.
- Add the remaining ingredients and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stopping and scraping sides of bowl as needed.
- Pour into greased and floured cake pan/pans, filling each pan a little over half full.
- Lightly tap cake pans on counter to bring air bubbles to top.
- Bake in preheated 325° F. oven until cake tests done. (18x12x12 in. pan 40-45 minutes)
- *Baking time varies according to the size and depth of pans being used.
- In 2" deep pans, this recipe makes:
- One 14" round and one 6" round
- or One 16" round
- or One 12" round and one 10" round
- or One 12 X 18 X 2" sheet cake
- or One 12" round and one 8" round and one 6" round
- or Two 9" squares.
- or 5 dozen cupcakes.
- Half the recipe makes:
- Two 7" rounds
- or Two 6" rounds and 6 cupcakes.
- For chocolate cake: use chocolate mixes and substitute 6 whole eggs for the egg whites.
- For liqueur flavors: substitute alcohol (such as champagne or Kahlua) for about 1 cup of the water in the recipe.
- For berry flavors: use frozen berries, thaw reserving the juice. Substitute the berry juice for part of the water in the recipe, and stir the berries in at the end.
- For lemon cake: substitute lemon juice for about 1 cup of the water in the recipe, use 6 whole eggs instead of the whites, stir in 1 Tbsp. lemon zest, and use 1 tsp of a good lemon extract in place of the almond.
- For white chocolate: melt 8oz white baking chocolate & cool slightly. use 6 whole eggs in the recipe instead of the whites, temper the chocolate by stirring in a small amount of the batter, then add the white chocolate to the entire batter and stir well. Doesn't bake up quite as high as the original, so add a pinch more batter to the pans.
