Recipe by bakingfanatic

Ever whanted a classic yellow cake recipe thats moist, delicious, and tender? Your search ends here. This is an easy yet sophisticated cake that goes great with Rich Chocolate Frosting. I suggest you use cake four but you may use all-purpose flour if you must. I made it up and tried it and It was wonderful.

Very fast and easy to make! I used a 9"x13" glass baking dish, and added an extra fifteen minutes to the baking time--it came out perfectly. It has a heavy, solid texture making it a good cake for traveling. Perfect recipe for when you do not have time for butter to soften!!!
