I don't know if it's "great", but people love it and it's very easy to make:

Simply White Cake
(from The Complete Book of Baking by Pillsbury)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
½ cup shortening (I used unsalted butter)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 egg whites

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 round cake pans. In a large bowl, blend flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk and shortening at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Add vanilla and egg whites; continue beating an additional 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pans.

Bake at 350 for 27 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely. Fill and frost as desired.

Coconut variation: Stir 1 cup flaked coconut into the batter before pouring into greased and floured pans.
