What is your favorite yellow cake recipe? I have been using box (I know...no more box for me!) and I would really like to start making my own.

Also, I need to make chocolate butter cream. Do I just make my regualr butter cream recipe, melt some chocolate chips, let it cool a bit, and then mix it in with my butter cream?

Thanks!

Here's my Go-To Yellow Cake recipe....it has a little looser crumb, but it is very moist

2 3/4 C All purpose flour
1 TBS baking bowder
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 C granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 C whole milk

I bake at 325 to get less of a "dome"

I go to www.wrenscottage.com and click down at the bottom "From Karens's Kitchen" The "Yellow Cake" recipe is really good. Plus the whole site has loads of tips and great recipes.

Thanks!!! I am definitally needing something that is really moist. Not to worried about crumbs because it will be covered in fondant, but I still need it to hold.

For chocolate buttercream, you can either add cocoa powder or melted unsweetened chocolate.

For Chocolate buttercream I add unsweetened chocolate, a little cocoa powder, and also instead of the milk I add chocolate milk. Mmmmmmmm tastes like chocolate ice cream.
