      Best white cake recipe I have ever used. My only change was to use butter instead of crisco.Years ago I discovered the perfect chocolate cake recipe, but for some reason the white cake just never worked out the way I wanted it. After trying my luck just winging a few recipes I finally came back to my beloved "Zaar" and started my search. After looking over a few recipes I came across this one. The change from my normal preparation of folding in the whipped egg whites at the end caught my attention, and the glowing reviews finalized my decision. I was a little skeptical at first because the batter was a bit thin, but after the first bite of a cooled cupcake I was sold. Moist, buttery and sooo good with my Italian buttercream. Thanks!!

      Wonderful :) Just a note to anyone wondering, sift then measure the flour out. This cake turned out great. Perfect height and perfect texture. Thank you for an amazing white cake recipe.

      This is a good recipe! I needed a cake in a hurry, and didn't have a mix on hand so I tried this recipe. It turned out great. I doubled the recipe and made it in a bar pan. I made a peanut butter frosting then put melted chocolate over that. Delicious!
