This is the best cake I've ever made! I substituted buttermilk for the regular milk and frosted it using kittencals chocolate frosting and it was delicious. I made it for my DH's Bday and we had 25 people over to celebrate. It was a hit!!! I mused this recipe to make another cake for my daughters birthday and it turned out perfect. Today I used it to make cupcakes and another marvelous turnout. It makes extly 2 dozen cupcakes and took about 15 minutes in the oven!!! Definitely my go to cake recipe.
I think this cake used to be called a 1,2,3,4 cake. Anyway, have used it as a basic cake for years and can guarantee it is one of the best. One suggestion is that the eggs are separated, whites beaten until soft peaks form and folded in last. Just gives it a different texture. The sky is the limit when it comes to the many uses this can be put to. Even makes a very good base for strawberry shortcake. Definitely do not substitute margarine or shortening for butter. Thanks for submitting such an excellent recipe.
