    Steve_G's Note:

    Here's a basic white cake that utilizes a slightly different mixing method that ensures success every time. This cake is slightly off white due to the butter and extract. It's a classic wedding cake. Cover with any flavor classic butter cream.

      The cake turned out quite moist, but the recipe contained far too much butter for my taste.

      This is the most wonderful white cake I have ever made! I used it for my dad's fiance's birthday cake, and put a mango filling in it, and everyone loved it! This one is sticking around for when I make my wedding cake!
