Here is a really good recipe for a yellow cake from Serious_cakes. When I make it, my eggs don't end up making it too yellow! You can make variations with this recipe quite easily too.

I just made Serious_Cakes yellow cake and it tastes kind of like a cross between corn bread and pound cake.. wasn't bad but wasn't what I expected. icon_sad.gif

My victoria sponge cake came out dry....what did you do to make it moist?

mine always just come out moist, though when i feel like it, il add some simple syrup which helps make it more moist.
maybe you overbaked, or mis-measured?

I use Toba Garrett's Moist Yellow Cake...

And Collette Peter's White cake...the variation with almond extract and almond paste creamed in with the butter. I'm not at home and can't find it on the web, but if you have her book, it's there.
