I was looking for a white/yellow cake for my daughter's birthday and I found this recipe in Smittenkitchen.com. the cake looks delicious and I gave myself a try..I divided the cake into two portion, one yellow and one pink. Frost it with butter cream. True enough as the owner claimed is a killer cake, the cake was simply delicious moist and tender..

Yield: Two 9-inch round, 2-inch tall cake layers, and, in theory, 22 to 24 cupcakes, two 8-inch squares or a 9×13 single-layer cake (I have yet to audition the cupcakes, shame on me)
4 cups plus 2 tablespoons (480 grams) cake flour (not self-rising)/ 4 cawan tepung cake ( bukan tepung naik sendiri)
2 teaspoons (10 grams) baking powder / 2 sdt baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda /1 1/2 sdt baking soda
1 teaspoon (5 grams) table salt / 1 sdt garam
2 sticks (1 cup, 1/2 pound or 225 grams) unsalted butter, softened / 225 g mentega
2 cups (400 grams) sugar / 2 cawan gula
2 teaspoons (10 ml) pure vanilla extract / 2 sdt vanila

- Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until pale and fluffy, then beat in vanilla. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well and scraping down the bowl after each addition. At low speed, beat in buttermilk until just combined (mixture will look curdled). Add flour mixture in three batches, mixing until each addition is just Incorporated./ Ayak semua bahan kering dan letak sebelah. Dalam mangkuk lain pukul mentega dan gula sehingga kembang masukkan vanilla. Masukkan telur sebiji demi sebii. perlahankan speed dan masukkan buttermilk. Masukkan tepung dalam tiga bahagian
- Spread batter evenly in cake pan, then rap pan on counter several times to eliminate air bubbles. (I like to drop mine a few times from two inches up, making a great big noisy fuss.) Bake until golden and a wooden pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in pan on a rack 10 minutes, then run a knife around edge of pan. Invert onto rack and discard parchment, then cool completely, about 1 hour./ Bahagikan adunan kepada dua bahagian dan curahkan ke dalam loyang pembaker bakar selama 30-40 minit stau sehingga masak.
