  1. HI, Here is a recipe I use for yellow cake if anyone wants to try. I wouldn't call it perfect, but it is pretty good. I have made half of the recipe before and the results were fine. 4 1/2 c. sifted cake flour 5 t. baking powder 1/2 t. salt 3 sticks unsalted butter, softened 3 c. sugar 6 large eggs at room temperature 1 1/2 c. milk 2 t. vanilla extract Into a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the butter; add sugar gradually, beating, and beat the mixture until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the flour mixture and the milk alternately in batches, beginning and ending with dry ingredients, add the vanilla, and beat the batter until it is smooth. Divide the batter between 2 lightly greased and floured 8" x 1 1/2" round cake pans, smoothing the top and rap each pan on a hard surface twice to expel any air bubbles. Bake the layers in the middle of a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-35 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean and the layers pull away slightly from the sides of the pans. Let the layers cool in the pans on a rack for 8 minutes, run a thin knife around the edge of each pan, and invert the layers onto the racks. Let the layers cool completely. Jane
  2. Hi, I don't know if anyoneis still interested but I thought I would post that I made the Egg Nog cake from the Ultimate Butter cake yesterday. It was really good! It is a perfect holiday cake especially if you like egg nog. It is one of the variations Sarah Phillips has on her site. Jane
  3. I would love a really good tried and true recipe for a from scratch italian cream cake. Does anyone have one to share? Jane
  4. Hi Dailey, I ran across these new flavors for the butter cake and was intrigued to try them since I love the ultimate butter cake. I made the strawberry cake yesterday, and thought it was divine! It was all gone by this morning! What didn't turn out for you? This is by far the best from scratch strawberry recipe I have tried so far. BTW, I love this forum! Jane
