Posted by Annita on January 13, 2007
Here’s a delicious and moist yellow cake,the recipe adapted from allrecipes.com. I’ve used buttercream and pineapple jelly as the filling here.
Cake Flour – 2 cups
(P:S : its not all purpose flour)
Granulated sugar – 1 and 1/2 cups
Unsalted Butter – 1 cup
Eggs – 4
(The original recipe calls for 8 egg yolks.I changed it,as I dont want to waste all those whites)
Milk – 3/4 cup
Vanilla Extract – 1 and 1/2 tsp
Baking powder – 2 tsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).Grease two 8 inch round pans and lightly flour it.Seperate the egg whites and yolks.Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form and keep it aside.Sift together the flour,baking powder and salt and set aside.
In another large bowl beat butter and sugar untill light and fluffy.Now add egg yolks one at a time and beat well.and stir in vanilla.Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated, starting and ending with the flour mixture.Mix in the egg whites using a wooden spatula.Now pour the batter into the pans and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.Cool in the pan itself for 15 mins and then gently tap it into a cooling rack.
