This cake turned out sooo good. It is the first cake I have made from scratch that turned out moist. I read a lot of other reviews first (thank you!) and made a couple changes and I have a couple of tips. I had doubled the recipe to make a round layer cake, but I substituted in shortening for half of the butter. I beat the shortening, butter, and sugar for 10 minutes straight. I added each egg one at a time, and beat each of the eggs in for 2 minutes, and then an additional 2 after the vanilla. I used cake flour instead of all purpose and I sifted it twice with the baking powder and a quarter teaspoon of salt (remember its doubled). Finally, I used heavy whipping cream instead of milk, and did add a quarter cup extra (for the double recipe). This cake may give me diabetes, but it is moist and incredibly delicious!
