Sometimes you need to strip off all the extras to relish a pure taste of a classic yellow cake, and that is exactly what this recipe is all about. This yellow cake recipe has a soft, tender buttery crumb to it with all the perfect flavors and then filled and frosted with the best chocolate frosting that's unforgettably chocolaty. The frosting recipe for this cake is simple and quick as well. A quick frosting recipe is always a keeper because it saves time and probably the only chocolate frosting recipe you’ll ever need. Besides, you don’t have to settle for a boring store bought frosting that doesn’t taste half as good as this homemade frosting recipe.

Yellow cake is a classic cake that makes a perfect base for almost any occasion that requires filling, frosting or for under the fondant. Usually, a classic yellow cake is made with simple ingredients like butter, flour, sugar, and eggs. However, achieving the perfect moist yellow cake can be tricky sometimes as there is a tendency for some cake recipes to end up having a dry texture or not rising well enough. Resist the urge to over whisk the eggs or the cake batter. Over whisking the cake batter can deflate the air bubbles in the batter which can make it hard for the cakes to rise. Cake baking is truly an art. For achieving the optimum taste and texture in cakes, always use quality ingredients. When you compare a store bought yellow cake mix with the one made from scratch in your kitchen, you’ll be surprised to notice the difference in the taste. That is because most store-bought cake mixes usually have artificial colorings and flavors.
