Ready In:
12 cupcakes




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.

  1. I love the simplicity of this recipe. I doubled the recipe to fit a 9x13 and added sprinkles to make it a funfetti cake. I used this as the base to a minion cake that I made for my daughters' birthday. It was delicious and got rave reviews! Thanks!
  2. I was looking for a simple quick recipe to make at home with my girls. This worked great and we all liked the flavor. It was a good consistency though I did add just a bit of milk. Will make it again and again a sure keeper. Thank you.
  3. this is a basic yellow cake! to make sure your cake comes out perfect make sure to beat the butter and sugar well! until it turns a pail yellow! this cake turns out delicious!
  4. I really appreciate the simplicity of this recipe; how wonderful to be able to make a cake from scratch, with things readily on hand? This makes a nice cake; I used a 9 inch round, and split the layer, to make my hubby a birthday cake. Not too much, or too big, as there are only 3 of us. Not that there's anything wrong with too much cake! Thanks for sharing, MaryPackard. Made for Spring PAC 2011 -
  5. This is a basic yellow cake and not a white cake. It is perfectly fine for what I needed it for. Sometimes, I just want to bake a cake and make it quick and easy. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen as it is.
