    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Please make certain that the eggs and butter are room temperature, and the milk is slightly warm not hot, this will make an extreme difference to the texture of the cake, please use cake flour and butter only for this recipe! If you prefer a more yellow colour cake you can always add in 1-2 drops of yellow food colouring if desired.
