Baker’s Tip

Use warm knife when cutting cake to prevent the outer frosting from cracking.

  1. With mixer, mix the eggs and sugar together on medium-high speed for about two minutes until the batter takes on a fluffy lemon-yellow appearance.
  2. Add sour cream; mix.
  3. Add oil; mix.
  4. Add vanilla, baking powder and soda; mix.
  5. Add remaining ingredients and mix until even consistency.
  6. Place batter in four greased 9" round cake pans and bake at 350° for 18 minutes.
  7. Allow cakes to cool, and then assemble the layers with frostings between each layer, and finally apply the outer layer of icing to entire surface of cake — refrigerate the cake for approximately half an hour to set outer frosting.
