One - Two - Three - Four Cake I


"I have altered my mother's recipe and added my own to this and I find it is better than hers especially since I replace the milk with yogurt. Now I mostly replace milk with yogurt in my other recipes and this gives a better texture. My husband says it tastes similar to pound cake which he loves so much and I don't put icing, although you can if you wish."

Just not what I feel is a true One, Two, Three, Four Cake. The taste, texture and taste just aren't what one would expect from a "True" recipe for this cake. I feel the recipe would be suited ...

Might want to rename this "Yogurt" cake. Batter is very stiff and cake is dense. This is not a 1,2,3,4 Cake, so named because they contain: 1 cup of milk & butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups cake flo...

If used almost immediately it might be okay but with 2 tsps. of cream of tartar it is almost bound to be dry. Much better recipes for this cake on this site

This is an exceptionally moist and delicious cake made with the yogurt suggested. I made it in a Bundt pan to serve for 15 people and had ample. I substituted 1 cup of golden sugar for 1 cup of...

I tried this recipe because of the yogurt. It came out very dry and not at all what I expected. I am an experienced baker, and this cake actually fell somewhat in the middle, something that ha...

I made this cake as a present for my in-laws. They are quite aged and do not like frosted cakes. They loved it. I added 1/2 cup raisins to the recipe.It turned out great.

This cake came out a little dry. I did use lowfat greek yogurt so that may have been the issue. I will try this one again, but I have a feeling its going to need a little less flour or a littl...

This is a good cake. I used fresh lemon peel and I think that made a big difference. It is more dense than a typical yellow cake.

I've made this recipe twice with excellent results. Both times I made two 8-inch layers, put sliced strawberries between them, and frosted the cake with a coffee/chocolate icing. I had to bake i...
