    I remembered this recipe from when I was a kid and I’m so excited to find it again! I was out of eggs, so I followed a tip to use 1/4 cup carbonated water for the second egg. The batter was beautiful! The butter made sure it stayed tender and didn’t dry out with the change. Not a tweak so much as a perk/option, but I’m still happy with the result. Also, I used the caramelized coconut frosting from the old Betty Crocker Cookbook instead of the fudge frosting and it’s great. Everyone should try it.

    My search for the perfect yellow cake ends here! This cake is perfect. The texture is light and fluffy, unlike most scratch cakes which are heavy and dense. This recipe is also extremely easy too make with ingredients on hand. It's important to beat on high for the full specified five minutes and to use cake flour (or a cake four substitute). I did not make the frosting, but used another vanilla buttercream recipe. Thanks for posting!
