Why I Love This Recipe

This is the cake I made for my grandmother's birthday party, altered from a cupcake recipe by Nicole from Baking Bites (


kes/). Deliciously moist and very vanilla-y, a perfect all-purpose cake for all! The lack of salt in this recipe allows the sweetness of the lower sugar content and the rich butter shine through.
