When I get Rose’s books, or any cook/baking book, I go for the chocolate first. Next is spice/crumb cakes and then other things. I don’t care for white or yellow cake at all. I use Sylvia Weinstock’s yellow recipe when needed and I will say, I love her’s. It doesn’t bake up high but it has a nice sweet taste. Thing is, for me, it’s a pain to make becuase I often have to double or triple the recipe. Cake flour has to be sifted and the butter/sugar then the egg whites later….time consuming. Worth it but time consuming. Sooo, my my question is, which Rose recipe for white cake is the best!

Bernadette, try Rose’s White Velvet Butter cake. It is very easy to make. I use the pasteurized egg whites so I don’t even spend time separating the eggs. It tastes really, really good. It is very tender, moist and not too sweet like all her recipes.

I second Rozanne’s recommendation, the White Velvet Butter Cake is excellent.

I agree - it’s hard to beat the White Velvet Butter Cake!  Btw, I tried Sylvia’s IMBC recipe - it’s pretty good, but it makes way too much to fit in a 5qt kitchenaid stand mixer as she suggests (fyi).

White Velvet Butter Cake it is! Next time! Patrincia, it was Sylvia’s yellow cake, not her IMBC. It’s good but when you have so many batches to make, it’s too time consuming. I won’t use another after making Rose’s mousseline! smile Thanks ladies!

Yep, I got that… I was just saying I like her and have tried her buttercream (I haven’t compared the specific ratios, but I think Sylvia’s and Rose’s buttercreams are very similar).  smile

I think I have Sylvia’s recipe around somewhere but if so, I haven’t tried it yet. Someone also recommended her chocolate fudge cake but one recipe calls for a dozen eggs!
