BEST Yellow Cake with Frosting

Growing up we always had baked goods waiting for us when we got home from school. To say my mom’s a baker is an understatement. She is the Queen of cakes, danishes, cookies and all things sweet. This is her yellow cake recipe. It’s a classic and staple for birthday parties, Shabbat dessert and those rainy afternoons you want to make cupcakes just because. You can bake it as a cake in a 9×13 pan, make a layered cake using two small round pans or serve them as cupcakes. Top them with the rich buttercream frosting for an even tastier treat!

I made 12 regular sized cupcakes and 17 mini cupcakes with this batter. I baked some with chocolate chips and baked some without and then added jam filling to them after they were baked. I topped them all with the buttercream frosting.

2 cups of flour
1 and 1/3 cup of sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup of oil
1 cup of oj
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Bake in oven on 350′, in 9×13 pan or two small round pans for 45 – 50 minutes until top is firm. (If baking cupcakes check after 20-25 minutes.)

Ingredients for Frosting:
1 box of confectioners powdered sugar
1/4 cup of soy milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 stick of butter, softened to room temperature

Directions for Frosting:
Cream together and blend until smooth.

  • Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after looking at
    some of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly happy I found it and
    I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!

  • Thank you for this recipe! It really is delicious. I made it in a number one shaped pan a few weeks ago, and now I’m planning to make it for the next birthday kid! I had lost the recipe- I knew I wrote it down but couldn’t find it so I quickly searched for parve yellow cake and found it. Phew. BH.
    So I had to leave a thank you.
