A few weeks ago, I spied a yummy-looking yellow cake recipe on my friend Rachel's blog...since I love yellow cake, I decided to give it a try!
Yellow Cake - Adapted from Rachel
2 3/4 C flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C butter, oil, shortening, or lard*
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 C milk
*I used ~1/3 C applesauce and the remaining bit was topped off with olive oil
Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. In your mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and oil/butter/lard until light and fluffy.
Then, add in the eggs, one at a time, along with the vanilla. Mix well.
Add the flour mix alternately with the milk beating until you have a smooth batter.
Pour into greased baking pans -- I used 2 9-inch round cake pans.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until the cake springs back when touched and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for a few minutes, and then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Then, frost with dark chocolate decadent frosting....
and, serve to your friend on her birthday!
