      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.

      I really like this cake. After reading other's comments, this is what I did to make sure it was moist...I added 2 TBSP sour cream and 2 TBSP vanilla yogurt. I also added a couple extra TBSP of sugar to make sure it was sweet enough for our taste. I think it's good even without any frosting!

      I tried this recipe and used some of the tips I read in the other reviews (2c. sugar, and all butter no shortening). I made 24 cupcakes and they turned out horrible! They rose too quickly and melted all over the pans into my oven before the tops set. I guess I will have to make these again and stick to the recipe as it was written and see if they turn out any better.
