Vanilla Breakfast Cake---review

Christine | Mar 6, 2006 10:13 AM

I'm trying to empty out the refrigerator in advance of a move and had all the ingredients on-hand for wyf4lyf's Vanilla Breakfast Cake. Except for sour cream. I substituted TJ's plain Greek-style yogurt, one-for-one.

The cake smelled great out of the oven, as others have noted. I used a springform pan with a "bundt" insert, greased and floured, and it popped right out.

It's in my office right now and everyone is raving. It has a great texture and would hold up well to a coulis or other sauce. My only concern is that I can detect a little bit of a chemical aftertaste that I think is from the vanilla I used: Trader Joe's Tahitian Pure Vanilla Extract. I use Rumford's baking powder, always, as I can taste the aluminum in Calumet.

Make this cake and be sure to use high quality vanilla. I'll buy some from Penzy's next time I'm there.

Thanks wyf4lyf!
