Yellow Cake
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
8 ingredients
12-16 servings
This is the recipe that I use for a basic easy cake. It's from Better Homes Cook book and I don't want to lose it so I am posting it here. This is the cake that started me baking from scratch and not using boxed mixes from the store. If you use all of the sugar then it's still real good without icing. I usually just use 1 1/2 cups of sugar and it work just fine.
