My Moms Yellow Cake

Sometimes I want to just make a simple dessert...nothing sprinkles or rosebuds or swirls or extra toppings. Just a delicious moist cake with butter cream frosting like my Mom used to make. This is her recipe for one of my favorite cakes. I like to put it in the fridge and eat it cold!

My Moms Yellow Cake

1 cup butter
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
2 cups plus 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream

Buttercream Frosting:

1 cup butter
6 tablespoons of canned evaporated milk or cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
4-5 cups powdered sugar
dash of salt

Put butter and water in a large bowl. Heat in microwave for 2 minutes. Stir until butter is melted. Add sugar, flour, salt, and soda. Stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Stir in sour cream until all is blended. 

Pour into a 11 x 17 baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper and then sprayed with non stick spray. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until cake springs back when lightly touched or toothpick inserted in center comes clean.
Remove from the oven and cool on cooling rack. 

Melt butter and evaporated milk or cream for 3-4 minutes in microwave. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and a dash of salt. Beat until smooth. Spread on cooled cake.
