MOIST YELLOW CAKE
*2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
*1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
*1 teaspoon salt
*3 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
*1 1/4 cups buttermilk
*3 teaspoons vegetable oil
*1/2 cup butter, softened
*1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
*3 large eggs
~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
~Spray a 9x13 inch pan (or 2-10 inch) with a cooking spray.
~Dust pan(s) lightly with flour.
~In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt & baking powder.
~Add butter, milk, oil & vanilla to flour ingredients.
~Mix on medium speed for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes, scrapping the sides of the bowl, to incorporate it well.
~Add eggs and mix for another 2 minutes.
~Pour into prepared pan(s).
~Bake for 20-30 minutes or until take springs back when touched lightly the center.
~Let cake cool completely before frosting. If using the round pans, allow cakes to cool for 10 minutes and flip gently onto a wire rack and allow to cool.
`If you plan on making a layer cake, line the prepared cake pan with waxed paper. Remove paper when you remove cake from pans.
`I always wrap 10 take with plastic wrap until it cools completely. This helps keep the cake extra moist.
