Rose Levy Berenbaum cake with no liquid?
I want to make a pineapple upside down cake, so looked in the Cake Bible cookbook for a yellow cake, but there is nothing in the index called yellow cake! (Is there another name?)
I did find pineapple upside down cake, but it contains no liquid, only egg yolk (no whites). Will that work? It does have butter and sour cream.
I haven't made this recipe but I'm sure it will work. I've never had a failure with a Rose Levy Berenbaum recipe. The instructions are always meticulous and obviously tested
Butter cake, or genoise (yellow sponge cake). Considering Ms. Berenbaum's credentials, I would not question the merit of her recipes. Eggs, butter, and sour cream have plenty of moisture. Liquid does not have to be milk or cream.
All of R.L.B. 's Cakes that I have made work and are darn good including the Pineapple Upside Down Cake
The Sour Cream is the Liquid
I did make this cake last night. The batter was very thick, had to be spread (not pourable.) The cookbook said "spread the batter" so thick batter was intended. I am used to a boxed mix yellow cake under my pineapple topping, so this was different. The flavor couldn't be better, so I didn't miss the height or fluff texture.
