Homemade Yellow Butter Cake

This recipe makes the most amazingly delicious yellow cake <3!
The cake comes out as fluffy and light as a pancake but tastes like a delicious sugar cookie even before your frost it.

  1. 2 Cups and 10 Tablespoons of flour (or 3 cups minus 6 tablespoons)
  2. 3 1/3 Teaspoons of baking powder
  3. 3/4 Cup of salted butter (room temperature)
  4. 1 1/3 Cups of sugar
  5. 6 egg yolks
  6. 1 Cup of milk
  7. 2 Teaspoons of pure vanilla extract

First sift the flour and baking powder together in a medium sized bowl, then set it aside.  In a separate bowl beat the butter until it is creamy, then add in the sugar and beat it until it is light and fluffy.  Next add in the egg yolks one at a time, beat well.  Then add the vanilla extract and mix until all of these ingredients are combined.  After all the ingredients are combined gradually the flour/baking powder and the milk (add 1/3 of the flour, then half of the milk, then 1/3 of the flour, and the second half of the milk, then the rest of the flour).  Mix all of the ingredients.

Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes

You'll never go back to boxed cake mix!
