    Wendys Kitchen's Note:

    This is a very quick recipe for butter cake that never fails. You can ice it with any frosting you desire - I will post frostings for butterscotch and chocolate cream ripple which go well with this cake.

      I've made this cake dozens of times but never got around to reviewing it - sorry! This is a fabulous cake; I make mine using my stick blender in a big bowl and bake in a 9" round cake tin. It is wonderful if you substitute the vanilla for some grated lemon or orange peel and a teaspoon or two of the juice. Also wonderful if you substitute a quarter of a cup of the flour for a quarter cup of cocoa (add a pinch of baking powder to make up for it if you feel like it) or sometimes I throw in some chocolate chips. It keeps well for at least a couple of days - it's never survived long enough to know just how long it will keep! Excellent cutting/lunchbox cake which is firm enough to ice or transport without worry. We love it!
