Easy Yellow Cake


Wow! This was my first time making a cake from scratch, and boy and I glad I came across this recipe. Moist and rich I used cane sugar and added honey, and the resulting flavor was so unique and yummy! I paired it with chocolate-coconut frosting. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Yes! This is it! I've been looking for a cake recipe that is as good as box cake and almost as easy (my scratch recipes often come out dry and crumbly). I'll use this as a basic recipe and then doctor it. YUM!

This cake turned out very dry & crumbled even taking it out of the pan. We followed the directions exactly so not sure what happened. The cake was a complete flop. Although the flavor was very good. What a shame for my daughter's 17th birthday!
