Recipe by JustaQT

Fairly simple and so delicious!

This is a good basic yellow cake for doing something else with, like frosting or strawberry short cake. It's not quite exceptional enough to stand on its own. It takes only one bowl - all ingredients are dumped in one, stir, bake. I used cake flour, and substituted margarine for the shortening. Maybe that, and the fact that I mixed it for more than 30 seconds, might account for why it is not as moist as I like. I think next time I'd add more butter and vanilla, give it a little more flavor. But it's a good basic yellow cake and certainly easy enough to make.
