This cake is awesome. I did add 1/4 tsp. salt to the recipe & increased vanilla to about 2 tsp. Sprinkled with powdered sugar & served with fresh strawberries and cream. Unbelievably delicious. Sometimes I want sweet - but not too sweet - this does it. I like this better than pound cake because it's lighter & softer.
My granny made this cake all the time for my pappy. It was from scratch & made in a pyrex bowl. (smaller scale) But what she did that made it so great was to add while hot, the coconut and brown sugar icing. While the cake is baking, in a pan she melted 6 T butter, 3/4 c brown sugar, 3 T. milk and 1/2 to 1 c. coconut. Bring to a boiling point and pour over the warm cake. I punch holes in mine to let it seep in. Heaven! I have to tell you that I have looked for this recipe for years and this is as close to my granny's as you can get. Thank you for the recipe. So to those ladies who complained, sorry but cake is priceless to me.
(3 stars to make a comment) No salt? I've been comparing this recipe to many others on the internet and this is the only one without salt. I would guess this is why some other reviewers find this cake bland.
Extremely plain and flavorless. I have a favorite yellow cake recipe but always like to try new things just in case something better might come along. This was disappointing to say the least. I even added extra vanilla and a touch of cinnamon because the batter tasted like a boxed pancake mix and I always spice up my pancakes. If you like plain bland cake then this is for you.
Just made this today and it is a good basic cake that is easy and quick. I baked my in a bundt pan for about 50-55 minutes. I only had whole milk, used organic unsalted butter, decreased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups, increased the vanilla to 2 tsp, added 1/4 tsp salt (my mother was an excellent baker and even when the recipe didn't call for salt, she ALWAYS put a little in all her baked goods), I also added a 1/2 tsp of King Arthurs Princess Cake and Cookie flavoring. The cake is similar to a pound cake, but not quite. I sprinkled it with confectioners sugar and will be serving it with fresh strawberries and whip cream. Next time I will try making cupcakes. I'll let you know if it doesn't work, but I have a feeling it will.
