One - Two - Three - Four Cake I

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 under a different name - since it is NOT a One, Two, Three, Four Cake.

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 flour, and 4 eggs. From there, variations may add 1/2 to 1 tsp salt, 2 to 4 tsp. baking powder, 1 to 2 tsp. vanilla, and may separate the whites or not depending upon the lightness desired. Some recipes substitute all-purpose flour, making them more coarsely textured than the real thing.

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
