How to Make Always moist yellow cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 2 nine inch round pans. Combine your flour, salt, and baking powder. Set Aside.
  2. Beat your sugar and butter for 7 min. Then add one egg at a time, combining well after each addition.(scrape bowl from time to time)Add oil. Begining with your flour mixture add alternatly with the milk. With your last addition of flour add the vanilla; you must hand mix this portion it to avoid overbeating the batter. Mix till well combined.
  3. Pour into your pans and bake from 20 to 25 minutes till your toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Boil the sugar and water (meant for glaze) for 2 minutes. Let cool. Then with a spray bottle lightly spray or you can also brush the tops of your cakes. You may just need 1/2 cup or less of this mixture. Don't overdue it.
  5. The glaze is meant to be used as a simple syrup; to add a lasting moisture to the cake; it should not be thick. I made this cake with an Italian buttercream icing and it was delicious! I also filled the cake with a chocolate pastry cream.
