Rated 5 out of 5 by Basic Cake from Beautiful Vintage Recipe Using cake flower is key to a moist cake! Easy to follow directions. The cake reminded me of a cross between Angel Cake and Pound Cake. This is a versatile recipe. Simply change the filling in the center as well as the type and or flavor of frosting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laxmon26 from Video was very nice I plan to follow the directions and tips particularly those cute pan ‘wraps’ (couldn’t make out what she called them). But her directions were very articulate and her demeanor perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CNY Senior from Decent Basic Cake Recipe I was looking for a recipe for yellow cake that used only 2 eggs because that's all I had on hand. My sense of the reviews about the cake having a cornbread texture was perhaps not all were following the ingredients and/or instructions. When a cake recipe calls for sifted flour, it has to be sifted BEFORE measuring, which I know from years of baking. Plus cake flour differs from all-purpose and they are not always interchangeable. Just for grins, I measured the 3 cups out, then sifted, then re-measured. Sure enough, there was nearly a 1/2 cup of flour left over. And yes, then it's sifted again with the baking powder and salt and avoided overbeating when mixing dry with wet. That said, it's still just an okay recipe. I'll opt for a 3 or 4 egg recipe in the future but it's a passable recipe in a pinch.
