This yellow cake is moist and delicious. After trying different cake recipes that I thought were too dry, I decided to try making up one of my own.

  • Cream sugar and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Beat in flour mixture alternately with milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into the prepared pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cake tops spring back when lightly tapped, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool 15 minutes before turning out onto cooling racks.
