    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This cake tastes like a boxed white cake mix only better, it has never failed me yet, it is a recipe that I use over and over again for the *perfect* white cake, and so easy to make too! really anything can be addded to this cake, tiny chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, add in some food colouring for a pastel coloured cake with matching frosting, this makes a wonderful birthday cake!--------- * NOTE* as one reviewer stated they omitted the salt, omitting the salt will change the texture of this cake completely, so please do *not* omit, using butter-flavor Crisco is acceptable but will alter the taste somewhat but not the texture ;-)

      This is an excellent recipe, add egg whites only for a true white cake. Whole eggs make it closer to a yellow cake. By increasing the ingredients by 5 and omitting the wet ingredients you can make this in to a mix and save for future use. To make cake: 5 cups of mix to 1 cups buttermilk, 3 egg whites, 2 t vanilla, 1/2 t almond. Mix well and bake. I make cakes a lot and this is a good mix to have on hand. The amount of servings was missing so I submited a request to show 12 servings, so the nutrition facts are correct.

      This cake at the moment looks great. I like the color of the cake and how light it feels when I press on it. I'm waiting for it to cool a little, before I cut it. I was asked to make birthday cake for a baby.. I have many recipes that I came up with, which are all great, but I wanted to try something different and interesting like finding something close to Duncan Hines. Duncan Hines is the best around. No disrespect to all others intended, just my opinion. I followed the recipe to a "T", doubling the recipe for a 11 by 15. turned out great. Here I go to try it. Fingers crossed. My goodness, PURELY EXCELLENT!

      The BEST white cake i have ever made. I didn't know if it would turn out white after i used yellow crisco, but it still did. I got soo many compliments on it! And i also added a little bit of milk with some cocoa powder for some chocolate cake and that was really good also.
