Yellow Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting
I am on the quest for the perfect yellow cake recipe. A beautiful high cake that is light and fluffy. I tried this recipe from Cooks Illustrated Spring Entertaining called Fluffy Yellow Layer Cake. In the Cooks Illustrated tradition this recipe is trying to prefect a yellow cake recipe to rival the height obtained by box cakes which are loaded with additives to achieve a light and high rising cake. Cooks version as you can see turned out high and was light but the cake had 10 tablespoon of butter and 3 tablespoon of oil. Definitely a special occasion cake. I have some other recipes to try in my search for the perfect yellow cake and I will share my results. As I have said before I love to bake, I could bake all day long. I frosted this cake with Chocolate Fudge Icing and I have shared the recipe. The cake recipe is available at the Cooks Illustrated web site if you join the site.
