***This recipe was recently featured here at The REAL Housewives of Riverton***

As promised in my post here about my son's Cars themed birthday cake, here is my grandma's recipe for yellow cake. Keep in mind that I'm at around 6,000 feet above sea level, so you made need to adjust accordingly (less flour, more flour, etc).

Grandma's Yellow Cake:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

1 1/2 cups sugar 
2 sticks (1 cup) margarine, softened
4 eggs
1 1/4 cup + 2 TBSP milk
2 tsp vanilla

3 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Mix together sugar, margarine, eggs, milk, and vanilla.

Add flour, baking powder, and salt

Pour batter in a 9x13 cake pan (or two round 9 inch cake pans) and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center.

I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.


  1. Yum, I am looking for a yellow cake recipe to mix with a cornbread recipe. I think this looks like it could be it. Thanks!

    1. You'll have to let me know how it turns out. Sounds yummy! Thanks for stopping by. :-)

  2. Do you have to use margarine or can you use butter. It should work the same either way shouldn't it?

  3. Can you use butter instead of margarine?
