Yellow Cake with Frosting!

I am not a BIG baker, but when I get in the mood to bake, I make from scratch because honestly there is no better feeling then looking at everyone enjoying cake you made not from a box. With Holiday's approaching fast, I thought it would be fun to post a cake recipe that I have used many times. This cake is super fluffy, super moist, and really is simple to make as long as you set the time aside. The taste is something everyone should experience once (fresh, fresh, fresh!!) just remember to use pure, organic ingredients. This cake would be good for any birthday, wedding, Holiday party or just because! I decided to make mine in a 9x13' pan, but you can use two 9' round pans, square pans, or whatever you want (even mini muffins or regular muffins- shh! I know! I was so gonna be mini muffins!!)


You Will Need:

Cake:

1 Cup Organic Butter, room temp
1 1/2 Cups Organic Pure Cane Sugar
2 Organic Pasture Raised Eggs
3 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Organic All-Purpose Flour
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt (Real Salt Brand)
1 Cup Raw Grass-Fed Milk, room temp



Frosting:

2 Cups Organic Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup Organic Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3-5 tbsp Organic Butter, room temp
1/4 Cup Raw Grass-Fed Milk
1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract




Cream your softened butter together with sugar


Add egg yolks and blend


Add vanilla


Stir together all the dry ingredients


Add the dry to the wet ingredients, mix well


Grease your pan or pans and sprinkle flour


Beat egg yolks until stiff peaks


Almost there


Fold, GENTLY, into the batter


Looking fluffy 


Pour in your pan, bake at 325 degrees for 40-50 minutes (at 35 minutes check with a toothpick). If you are making mini muffins bake for 15-20 minutes and two 9' pans 25-30 minutes. Once cake is done, remove and cool completely


After cake cools, beat butter for frosting


Sift cocoa powder, and powder sugar into the butter


Add 1 tbsp milk at a time (add more for thinner or less for thicker) add vanilla now too


Whisk away....


YUM! Frost your cake, and place in fridge to cool and stiffen


Most amazing cake ever! Serve with a cold glass of milk or as my father likes to eat it in a bowl with milk poured into the bowl! ENJOY!
