Classic Yellow Cake Batter
Layer cake, cupcakes, or loaf cake? Our basic yellow cake batter recipe makes all these and more. This classic, all-purpose batter will help you turn out Raspberry-Cream Layer Cake, Cappuccino-Chocolate Cupcakes, and Chocolate-Vanilla Marble Cakes. The buttermilk in the batter is not only a flavor enhancer with its subtle tang, but it also keeps the cake moist and tender. Be patient creaming the butter and sugar, as this important step ensures the final product is light and fluffy.
