my sad dry yellow cake

trolley | Jun 29, 2007 11:09 PM

i'm super depressed. i made the yellow cake from the best recipe (cooks illustrated)cook book and it turned out to be this dry sad cake. the ganache frosting i made was too bitter which was my fault for buying bittersweet instead of semi. i felt like the cake, even if it turned out moist, had too much of a fine consistency almost like a genoise. but with a genoise it gets soaked so there is usually no dry issue. anyway, i made it for my SO's b-day and he politely ate it but i knew it was going to the garbage after.

i baked it for the given time and i followed the recipe to a T. does anyone have a great yellow cake recipe they would like to share or any other hints or tips so i can re-do it right? Thanks!
