The ultimate yellow cake
Old Fashioned Yellow Layer Cake
2 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into small cubes
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2/3 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
Preheat Cuisinart® Convection Microwave Oven with Grill to 350°F on convection setting. Butter two 9-inch round cake pans and then cut a circle out of parchment paper to fit the bottom of each pan.
Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar into the mixing bowl of the Cuisinart Stand Mixer fitted with the flat mixing paddle. Turn mixer on speed 1 to mix the dry ingredients together. Add the butter to the bowl and start mixing on speed 1. Increase to speed 3 and continue mixing until the butter is well incorporated into the dry ingredients giving the mixture the look of wet sand, approximately 2 minutes.
While the dry ingredients and butter are mixing, stir together the remaining wet ingredients in a large liquid measuring cup.
With mixer on speed 1 add the wet ingredients, incorporating the ingredients fully before each addition.
Pour the thick batter evenly between the two prepared pans.
Bake one layer on the microwave turntable and one on the grill rack in the upper rack position. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester just comes out clean.
Leave pans to rest on cooling racks for 15 minutes. Remove from pans but leave on the racks until completely cool before frosting.

Servings: Makes two 9-inch cakes, 12 servings
