Original recipe yields 2 -8 inch round cake layers



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter and flour two 8 inch round cake pans then line them with parchment paper.
  2. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt and set aside.
  3. Cream the butter until fluffy. Add the sugar gradually and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks and add the vanilla. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, alternating with milk. Stir the batter until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes. This cake rises very well so only fill the cake pans 2/3 full. Cool cakes in pans for 10 minutes, then cool thoroughly on a wire rack. Frost as desired.

I used this recipe for my bosses birthday, I was so embarassed when everyone started eating it. The cake was dry and the flavor was awful. This is the worst recipe I have ever made. I will never use it again, nor would I ever recommend this recipe to someone.



Unfortunately this was not a good cake and I won't make it again. There wasn't much flavor to the batter and the finished cake was exceptionally dry - not at all moist. I think the cooking time was too long. I took my cakes out 6 minutes early and the top of the cake was too brown and crunchy and the inside dry.



This was one of the worst cakes I have ever made...i will not make it again....ewe!
