Let’s take this by strategy!!!
Two sticks of butter = 226 grams right?
Here, two sticks of butter is 1/2 pound. 8 oz at 28g/oz is 224, so, yea, 224-226 g is it!
Also could you tell me what the crumb is like? Is it like any of roses butter cakes , or is it more on the pound cake side ?
I am so lame. I cannot. I can tell you this: The cake took longer than expected to cook (as they often do in my oven), so I was completely paranoid that it would be dry. However, it was moist and delicious. So, that’s the best I can tell you about the crumb. The problem is, the visual of an overcooked, dry cake was so strong and persistent, that it is stuck in my mind greater than the actual cake, which didn’t have teh benefit of burning itself into my psyche like the hypothetical overcooked cake did, if you know what I mean. Sad, but true. I only ate and enjoyed it—and enjoyed other people enjoying it!
Also if it is on the denser side do u reckon making a sub with cake flour instead of all purpose would help ?
To my mind, AP flour can give a “denser” perception, but it also gives a “moister” perception. I like AP, myself—and I prefer unbleached, too.
or should i just stop thinking so much and just go try it lol !!! =)
I would. The only thing I did was tweed it, because I was concerned that I might find the cake too sweet since becomming accustomed to Rose’s cakes. That said, it might have been perfectly find. The first time I made it, I made it “as written”—the whole cake—except that I doubt I put that much powdered sugar in the frosting. It was described as a “very sweet, very yummy” cake, so that “very sweet” stuck in my mind. However, I’m sure a lot of that was due to the caramel topping that goes on the top of the layers in addition to the frosting.
If you make it, I hope you will report back and say if you liked it or not! If he likes pumpkin cake, that pumpkin cake I linked too is amazing. I posted a couple pics of it here. I did my own frosting, though, as I am rather wont to do.
Please let me know if you have any more questions!
