This was the first recipe I made out of Dorie's book just before I joined TWD. The cake on the cover looked so good, I just couldn't wait for someone to choose it! The frosting was a little tricky, but I really liked it because of how light tasting it was. Best of all, it wasn't cloyingly sweet like other 7 minute frostings. I baked this cake in 3 8 inch pans and used the scraps from leveling each layer for the crumb topping. This is actually the cake I made from a few months ago. I was planning on baking this, but I made way too many batches of cupcakes (4 batches in 4 days!) and my family and I are all caked out. I'm just grateful that they're not annoyed with me after I forced them to try the same recipe 4 times with only a single ingredient modified. If someone could please share a moist, fine crumbed and soft vanilla cupcake recipe, I would be really thankful!
Thanks to Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater for choosing this recipe, which can be found on her blog and here. Don't forget to visit the TWD Blogroll!
