David's Yellow Cake
August 13, 2010

I've used this recipe several times now after experimenting with some other yellow cake recipes found on this site. This is by far the moistest, most delicious homemade yellow cake I've ever baked, and I bake a lot. I took a suggestion from other reviewers and used 4 yolks and 2 whole eggs. I've baked it in all forms: cupcakes(1/2 full about 15 min), 2 9" rounds (20-21 min), 9x13 (30 min) and it always comes out amazingly. For those people having problems with your cake sinking--check your baking powder and make sure it is fresh. Old/stale baking powder is the prime cause of cakes sinking. Just want to send a big THANK YOU to David for sharing such a wonderful recipe!
