Description

This is an easy, yummy and moist yellow cake recipe. No funky aftertaste; if you’ve ever made one from scratch you know what I mean.

Ingredients

  • 2-¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 3-½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1-¼ cup Milk
  • Vegetable Oil
  • ½ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • 3 whole Large Eggs

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well.

Measure the milk in a 2-cup measuring cup then add enough vegetable oil to bring the liquid up to 1 1/3 cup.

Beat the butter and vanilla and add the milk mixture. Add the butter/milk mixture to the dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed

Add the eggs, one at a time and continue to beat for an additional 2 minutes. Pour batter into a prepared pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

This recipe will also fill three 9 x 1 1/2 inch round pans.

Very good recipe! I used lemon zest instead of vanilla for lemon cake. Delicious!

This recipe was really easy and turned out great! I was going for a tropical feel so I swapped out most of the milk for pureed banana and kiwi, and the cupcakes turned out super moist and delicious. This recipe has made me pretty popular with friends and co-workers. :)

This recipe is so easy and yummy! I use it as the base for my cake balls and stir in some vanilla bean buttercream frosting. *Make sure you butter & flour you pan before adding the batter.
