Basic Yellow Cake

So I needed a good cake to make for my daughter’s birthday cake.  I haven’t found a good recipe that is good to frost until now!!  This cake was AMAZING!!  My husband, who only like chocolate cake has eaten it.  Super yummy and easy to work with when frosting, decorating and making cakes!
This recipe is a good all-purpose recipe. It is easy and fast to make. It does not have a real distinct flavor so it goes well with all icings and fillings. It has a nice even texture. It uses only basic ingredients which everyone has on their shelves.
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans. In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; mix well Add all remainingcake ingredients. Beat at low speed for 30 seconds. Beat 3 minutes at high speed. Pour batter into greased and floured pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
For my 11×8 sheet pan, I bake it for 35 to 40 minutes
