I need a recipe--scratch or doctored--for an amazing yellow cake. It must be a butter tasting yellow because it will be covered with caramel icing.

Thank you so much for your help.

I like Toba Garrett's Moist Yellow Cake recipe http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/109358 and I also like Sylvia Weinstocks Classic Yellow Cake recipe http://homecooking.about.com/od/cakerecipes/r/blc13.htm
I tend to use Sylvia's because it's a little easier...Toba's recipe has you using your mixer for quite a while!

Do these recipes make 2--9" rounds? Or will I need to make a double recipe?

I've already gotten raving compliments from using Betty Crockers Butter flavor yellow and add a box of vanilla or french vanilla pudding, 1 extra egg and 1/3 cup more water for the pudding.....it makes is very very moist......this is good for something simple and quick.

I just tried the Vanilla Butter Cake from the Mermaid Bakery and everyone LOVED this cake. The recipe is here on CC.

On Toba's and Sylvia's I would make 1 1/2 the recipe for a 9".

I did a HUGE comparative bake off - 6 or 7 different scratch recipes. I posted a LONG discussion of results here but it got 'lost' in the revamp icon_sad.gif
Anyway, the upshot of it was that I (and my testers - ie. family) thought the Mermaid Bakery Vanilla Butter Cake had the best flavour and texture
