Classic Yellow Cake Recipe
Sour cream adds richness to classic yellow cake while whipped egg whites lighten it up. Top with Buttercream Icing.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
  2-1/4 cups sifted cake flour
  2 teaspoons baking powder
  1/2 teaspoon salt
  1/2 pound (2 sticks) sweet butter, room temperature
  2 cups sugar
  4 large egg yolks
  2 teaspoons vanilla
  1 cup sour cream
  4 large egg whites
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter and line two 8 x 3-inch baking pans or one 12 x 3-inch pan with parchment.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Cream the butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy and light in color, about 2 minutes on medium speed. Add the sugar and continue to mix until fluffy and light.

Add the egg yolks, one at a time, being sure each is well incorporated before adding the next one. Add the vanilla.

Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients alternately with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the flour. Be sure the mixture is completely blended after each addition. Scrape the sides of the bowl, and beat for 1 minute.

In a separate bowl, with clean beaters, beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the batter with a rubber spatula.

Pour the batter into the prepared pans and smooth with a rubber spatula. Bake in the preheated oven, 60 minutes for the 12-inch square pan or 45 to 50 minutes for the 8-inch pan. The top of the cake should be nicely browned. Test for doneness with a skewer or a toothpick; the tester should come out dry and clean.

Yield: 1 large or 2 small loaves

I use Indydebi's Buttercream, in fact I am mixing up a batch as we speak. It is very sturdy and taste good. Do a search in the recipes section and you will find it. It's very popular on this site.

Indydebi's recipe is great under MMF and is great for piping and what not. put less of the liquids in to make it thicker or add to make it thinner. Really is a great recipe

If you add butter to this mixture would you have to put the cake in the fridge then or can you leave it out for a day or so????
