Let me tell you the story of finding the best yellow cake recipe. The story starts with my sister Su and her latest craze, baking!

My sister Su (Who is a published Fiction writer), in a sneaky way, got in the kitchen and baked something and she wanted to keep it as a surprise.

I wasn’t allowed to enter the kitchen except for an emergency, even then I shouldn’t open the oven or turn on its light. All I had to do was wait for the oven timer to go off. Then—and only then—I could open the oven.

She’d just left (with a wicked smile on her face) and asked me to babysit whatever was baking while keeping in mind the rules she set.

The sweet aroma of a delicious surprise wafted into the living room, but I kept my promise. I went to the kitchen only when the timer went off.  

I opened the oven door and…Wow! Although the aroma was delicious, it didn’t prepare me for the gorgeous cake sitting in the middle of the oven.

A Conversation with a Yellow Cake

I took it out and placed it on the kitchen counter, just staring at its color.

I asked myself: When and from where did Su get this recipe?

Golden Yellow Cake: If you’re done staring, can you put me on a wire rack?
I rubbed my eyes.

Me: What the #$@%? You can talk?

GYC: Aha.

Me: Hmm, I expected something twisted from Su, a talking cake!! What are you?

GYC: Look, I don’t want to be rude or anything, but I really need to get on that wire rack, I hate it when I get dry and crumbly!

After I placed the cake on the rack…

GYC: Man! That feels good.

Me: So what are you?

GYC: I’m a Golden Yellow Cake, but you can call me Goldie.

Me: I heard about you. People say you’re heavy.

GYC: Excuse me?

Me: I meant your ingredients.

GYC: It’s true. Still, everyone wants a piece of me hehehe.

Me: Aaand you giggle as well! Wow. So tell me about you, I mean other than being gorgeous.
GYC: Don’t make me blush, I don’t want to turn RED! I am delicious. If you don’t tell your guest about my ingredients I can pass for a butter tea cake. The best part is that I’m sometimes mistaken for Pound Cake, but they soon come to know that I’m something else from just one bite.

I reached for a fork and knife and smiled at Goldy.

GYC: Gulp

Of course, the conversation between me and the cake was imaginary! I promise, I didn’t lose it

Yellow cake made from scratch tastes amazing and I promise it won’t last long in your house.

The recipe I’m sharing today is a loaf cake but you can double the recipe and make two 9” cake.

This cake is moist but holds nicely, so it is a perfect yellow cake for birthdays and special occasions.
