Southern Living Basic Yellow Cake Recipe ( or Chocolate)
50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
7 ingredients
2 servings
I found this is an older Southern Living cookbook- "Heritage Cakes" . This is a basic yellow cake that yields 2 layers. The recipe is as found: my only changes have been direction clarifications. For Chocolate Cake: Add 3 ( 1 oz.) squares of unsweetened choclate, melted in a double boiler, to the creamed mixture.
