A tender yellow cake. Sure to be a hit.

It's a wonderful one bowl cake. Gotta love those recipes.

The recipe comes out of a McCall’s book published 100 years ago in 1910.

Enjoy!

How to Make Yellow Cake - One Bowl

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8-inch cake pans.


    In a large mixing bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Add butter, milk and vanilla. Beat with a hand mixer on medium speed for 3-4 minutes, occasionally scraping sides of bowl.
  3. Add eggs, beat for 3 more minutes. I also started adding a few drops of yellow food coloring, just an option...gives it a bit more yellow hue...
  4. Pour batter into prepared pans, dividing equally among both.
  5. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.


    Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Turn out and cool thoroughly on wire racks.I frosted with whip cream frosting. If using whip cream frosting the cake must be refrigerated.

    You can use chocolate frosting, which is usually the frosting of choice for yellow cake. I just wanted to be able to taste the moist cake, not just frosting.
