  • In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed beat together butter, oil, sugar, eggs, milk, water, and vanilla. On low speed gradually add flour mixture and beat until blended.
  • Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. Make the icing while the cake is baking.
