"I modified this recipe slightly, and it recipe makes a really good, dense layer cake for a strong frosting. Make it with a fudgy icing and you will have a very rich cake. My modifications: (1)substi..." See moretute butter for the shortening, (2) use cake flour, (3) reduce baking powder to 3t, (4) reduce almond extract to 1/2t and (5) add 1/2t salt."
"With minor modifications this is a 5-star yellow cake recipe; as good as it gets! I like the moistness of shortening, but I also I like the flavor and richness of butter - so I used a 50/50 combinatio..." See moren of both. I also added 1/2 tsp. of salt to enhance flavor. I baked this as cupcakes and found them light, moist and delicately sweet. As long as you cream your shortening or butter and sugar well, and then add the eggs one at a time to keep the batter aerated and emulsified, you won't have any "dry and dense" issues. I would not hesitate to make this again...repeatedly. With lots of fluffy buttercream frosting."
