    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    My gram considered this to be her "BEST" yellow cake...It was WONDERFUL! Try it, you'll LOVE it! My gram used chocolate frosting lots of times, and then sprinkled chopped walnuts all over the top. Sometimes she would use Grammie Bea's Special Vanilla Frosting instead... YUM! Keep in mind this is a "homemade" cake not a "box" cake. It has a heavy, moist texture a lot like Wacky Cake. Note: Don't over bake. Check cake at 30 mins. and every 5 mins. after, until a toothpick stuck in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

      This recipe is almost identical to one in a Pillsbury cook book. I made it using 1 1/2 cups of sugar per the Pillsbury recipe. Also, I replaced half of the shortening with butter. The cake was lovely and moist. I removed it from the oven when some crumbs still clung to the tooth-pick to prevent it from drying out. Frosted it with a butterscotch frosting posted on this site. It was wonderful. Thank you.

      I made this cake for Sunday dessert . Although the cake was good, to me it would have been more like a shortcake rather than your typical yellow cake. I will try the recipe again in strawberry season, but not as a frosted cake.

      I love the taste and texture of old fashion cakes and knew this yellow cake would be perfect to go with Whipped Chocolate Cream Icing, which I made up to frost this cake. Everyone was asking me for seconds, so I took that as a definate 5 stars for this cake! It was so moist and delicious!
