Quick Yellow Cake and Yummy Chocolate Frosting

8:09 PM Posted In , Edit This 0 Comments »
My daughter Trixie requested a yellow cake for her birthday. I found this recipe on Recipezaar and tried it. It came out a bit thin but tasted very good! I might double the recipe and cook a little longer the next time.
*UPDATE* Do not double this recipe and still use 2 9" rounds. It will make a mess of your oven. Use two 9x13's instead. Ask me how I know...

Quick Yellow Cake

2 cups flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs

Heat oven to 350.
Mix dry ingredients in lg bowl.
Add butter, milk and vanilla.
Beat on med for 2 minutes.
Add eggs and beat for 30 seconds more.
Bake in greased 13x9 pan for 35 minutes or 2 9" rounds for 22-25 minutes or until pick comes out clean.

I paired it up with Nana's Chocolate Frosting (adapted to my ingredients).
