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

This was posted in response to my request for a good white cake to bake for my son's 1st birthday. This cake was so good and moist and it was a big hit with everyone, even the birthday boy. thanks Steve for the recipe.

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!

Thanks Steve. I tried it last night and everbody found it so moist and delicious. I only decreased the amount of butter to 2/3, and the taste was still so perfect. Next time I will cut a little more from the butter. And I prepared the frosting from the whipping cream, cheese and eggs (like the tiramisu frosting) which gave it a fantastic taste. This cake was really a hit for everbody at the dinner, and two of the friends already took the recipe.

Great cake, simple to make. I added 1 t vanilla extract and 1 t lemon extract to give it a citrus flavor. Then frosted it with Sprinkles Vanilla buttercream frosting recipe I found on recipezaar. Next time I might fill my 9 inch layers with seedless raspberry jam or Sour cream cake filling to go with the lemon theme.

This was an amazing, dense white cake. I used regular flour, regular sugar and salted butter. Everyone agreed that this was the best white cake they ever had.

I made this cake for a sweet 16 party and I have to say that it came out great. The cake was for 100 people and they all thought that it was wonderful. Thank you very much for this recipe.

Have to agree with some of the previous comments - the butter needs to be cut down.
