Original recipe yields 6 - 9 inch layers



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour six 9 inch round pans. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Alternately beat in the flour mixture and the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  3. Divide batter into six 9 inch pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Pretty decent cake, but as white and yellow butter cakes are notoriously a little drier, I think for my own personal preference I would add a couple of extra yolks to the batter in the future. Experience has shown me this really helps. For those who remark this tastes like or has the texture of corn bread, perhaps you're not beating your butter and sugar long enough? You really have to beat it for a good 2-3 minutes to aerate it, which definitely makes all the difference in terms of texture. I made these into cupcakes, and added 1 tsp. of grated lemon zest to the batter. Frosted with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting, also from this site.

I made this into a 9x13 sheet cake and cooked this for 30 minutes. It turned out golden and moist. I found an easy and quick yellow cake. Excellent with chocolate frosting.



a whole lotta cake for a whole lotta people... I put a layer of lemon curd and then used cream cheese frosting on top of that.
