Classic White Cake is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst recipe The cakes are lumpy and did not come out of the pans using the cooking spray as per instructions. Would never use this recipe again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have made this a few times now the only thing different that I do is add one egg yolk and about a tsp. more vanilla and it turns out very delicious!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok if you make a simple modification I’ve used this recipe several times before and I do know how to sift. It does come out really dry. However, if you add a vanilla pudding mix into the batter, it fixes the problem. It is definitely moist when adding the pudding mix. I use this for birthday cakes and add sprinkles for a funfetti cake. Everyone raves about the cake with this simple modification.
