DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour (not using the butter/flour called for in the recipe) two 8x2 inch cake pans, tapping out excess flour. In medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. With mixer on low, beat in eggs and yolks, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Alternately beat in flour mixture and uttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix just until combined.
  • Divide batter between pans; smooth tops. Bake until cakes pull away from sides of pans, 32 to 35 minutes. Let cool in pans 10 minutes. Run a knife around edges of pans and invert cakes onto a wire rack. Let cool completely.
  • Place one cake bottom side up on a cake stand. Tuck strips of parchment paper underneath. Using an offset-spatula or table knife, spread top with Whipped Frosting. Top with remaining cake; frost top, then sides. (Store unfrosted cakes at room temperature up to 1 day Once frosted, serve within a few hours.).
