Grandma's Cream Cake

This is an excellent cake recipe that comes from my grandmother. It is very easy to make and delicious. This is the recipe I usually use whenever I want to make a white cake from scratch. I also use it all the time for cupcakes. Try my frosting recipe on top and don't ruin it with the boughten stuff.

Grandma's Cream Cake
by Chelsey W.

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup whipping cream
or 1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
3 eggs
pinch of salt
3 tsp baking powder 
or 1 tsp of baking soda if using sour cream
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together the flour and sugar then add the cream and other ingredients. Mix until well combined and pour into a greased 9x13 cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 min. or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely and frost.

Perfect Frosting
1/2 c margarine or butter, softened *I prefer flavor of margarine in this
3-4 c powdered sugar
milk as needed, a few tablespoons
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract (to taste)
food coloring

The frosting is made by taste. Put a stick of margarine in a large mixing bowl. On low speed mix with electric beaters beat margarine slowly adding in about 2 c of powdered sugar. Add a little milk when it gets too thick. Add more powdered sugar, vanilla and almond extract. Continue to mix in powdered sugar until frosting reaches desired thickness and taste. Add a little food coloring and frost cake.
