Yellow Cake

This is my Aunt Mary's recipe that has been passed down for generations.  It is a dense, very moist cake with a nice crumb.  Holds up great for decorating!  Excellent with chocolate frosting or fresh strawberries!

from the family of my Aunt Mary

  • 2/3 cup margarine (I used butter)
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large or extra large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups AP flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9x13 pan. (If turning out grease and lightly flour or use baking spray)
In a small bowl whisk together, flour, salt and baking powder.
Working with a stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat margarine or butter well.  Add sugar and beat well.  Adds egg one at a time while mixing on low.  Add vanilla. Add flour while mixing on low.  Add milk slowly.  Turn speed to med. high and beat for 2 and half minutes.
Pour into pan and bake for 20 min. at 350 and reduce temp. to 325 and bake additional 15-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  (I almost always have to add time)
