David's Yellow Cake Recipe
- 1 cup butter
- 1 ½ cups white sugar
- 8 egg yolks
- ¾ cup milk
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups cake flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 - 8 inch round pans. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
step 2: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pans.
step 3: Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly tapped. Cool 15 minutes before turning out onto cooling racks.
