Starlight Yellow Cake

This yellow cake recipe comes from 'Betty Crocker's Cookbook: Everything You Need To Know To Cook Today'. It can be made either in round pans or a 9 X 13-inch rectangular (the pan I used for this recipe). For frosting, you can use your favorite recipe, or buy your favorite brand.

*Instead of using flour and shortening to grease the pan or pans, you can just use nonstick baking spray; that's what I used and it worked just fine.
