After reading some reviews I made a few changes: I used butter flavored shortening and I sifted the dry ingredients. I don't have a Kitchenaid so I had to use my hand mixer (which works quite well). I mixed the shortening and sugar VERY well, for about 6 minutes, and mixed in one egg at a time. I alternated mixing in the milk and the flour as directed. I made sure the whole concoction was well mixed. I put the batter in 2 round 9" pans.
My end result was this: The cake looked beautiful and had no problem rising. I did get a caramelized coating as other reviewers mentioned. It was light and fluffy, but too sweet, and I thought overall it was not very tasty. I'll continue my search for a delicious yellow cake.
