David's Yellow Cake
I had 8 yolks left over from Swiss meringue buttercream and just had to try this recipe. I baked it into 24 cupcakes at 375 for about 18 minutes. They started to sink a bit when I took them out of the oven, so I was worried they would be a mess. However, they turned out to hold up fine. The main point is, this is THE BEST vanilla/yellow cake I've ever tasted. It's so moist that it kicks cake mix out of the ballgame. The taste is truly buttery, yellow cake.

Banana Banana Bread
The densest and moistest banana bread I've made! I used six large overripe bananas that were more black than yellow. I also added a teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, a pinch of cloves, and a handful of walnuts. Made such a difference. Next time I might substitute the butter with unsweetened applesauce. Oh, and after an hour of baking at 350, I turned the temperature down to 300 and baked for 15 more minutes. I thought the top was over-browning, but it tastes moist and delicious today.
