Posted by SeriousCakesThis recipe is so easy and soooo good! I like to swap out the vanilla and use other extracts, or add some lemon or orange zest-very good! Here's the video on youtube showing how I make it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYQ-dryteww
Easy Yellow Cake
- 2 3/4 c. all purpose flour 3 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. salt 2 c. granulated sugar 1 c. Crisco shortening 2 tsp. vanilla extract 4 large eggs 1 3/4 c. milk
- Preheat oven to 350, grease and flour pan(s).
- Sift together dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a large bowl cream the shortening and sugar until somewhat fluffy and creamy-about 4 minutes. Add the vanilla extract, then the eggs and mix until just blended. Alternate adding the flour mixture and milk in three parts beginning with the flour and again mix until just blended. Pour into pan(s) and bake for 40-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out with just a few crumbs. This recipe can make a 9x13 layer or a 2 layer 8" or 9" cake.
