Yeasted cake recipes or ideas?

I've always been a yeast man at heart. During baking school I despised cake making and always wished I could just proof the fussy french thing and be done with it. I have since begun to miss making real cakes but I still have the urge to make a yeasted cake. I've only found one recipe for any such thing online, if anyone can show me the way to recipes or has tips I would be sehr grateful! I may try to modify an english muffin recipe from alton brown but would prefer to start with a proper formula.


-Danke

I'm sure I have more bookmarked somewhere, but this might be a good start. A lot of classic coffee cakes are yeasted.

Hi Brot Backer,


I'm not sure how plain a cake you were looking for if you were thinking of starting out with a muffin recipe.  However Cornish saffron cake is traditonally a yeasted cake. There is a recipe here http://www.greenchronicle.com/connies_cornish_kitchen/saffron_cake.htm


Some recipes for malt loaf are also yeasted. Delia Smith has a recipe for a yeasted versio here.  http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/type-of-dish/sweet/sticky-malt-loaf.html


Hope your baking goes well.  Regards,  Daisy_A

You might also consider trying these two KAF's cakes:

I have had my eyes on these for some time now and am planning on trying them soon. According to the reviews they should be quite delicious.

Wow! Thanks for the responses! I think I may try one of these recipes on friday, if I do I'll be sure to post the results.


I also may bake a sourdough with 20-30% Masa flour, has anyone tried this?

Here is the cake. I only crumb-coated it with chantilly.

I didn't make masa bread this time but this apple-blackberry pie was so good!
