I read in a post somewhere that Sara I think had a problem with dry cakes. Well here are 2 that have been in my family forever and are very moist.

The first one is from my grandma who was a fantastic baker! This recipe can also be doubled to make a 13x9x2 pan. Baking time will be longer so just keep an eye on it.

Sponge Cake

2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teasp. baking powder
1/2 teasp. salt
1/c cup hot milk (do not boil!)
1 teasp. butter or margerine
1 teasp. vanilla

Sift together flour, salt and baking powder, set aside. In a large bowl cream eggs and sugar for 5 minutes.
Add hot milk, butter and vanilla and mix well, then add dry ingredients and mix well again.

Grease a 8" square pan with margerine, pour batter in pan and bake at 325-350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

This recipe will make 1 dozen cupcakes.

This recipe is great all on it's own or with your favorite fruit and whipped topping.

***********************************************

This recipe has been in the family for years and I don't know where it comes from. I have cut it down because the original recipe was way too much for a 13x9x2 pan, it overflowed! :yikes: If anyone wants the full recipe which makes a 1/2 sheet pan size, just pm me and I will send it to you.

Chocolate Mayonaise Cake

2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
2 2/3 teasp. baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/3 cups sugar
3/4 teasp. salt
1 1/3 cups cold water
2/3 cup mayonaise
1 1/4 teasp. vanilla

Sift dry ingredients together, set aside. In a large bowl combine wet ingredients, then add dry ingredients.
Grease and flour a 13x9x2 inch pan. Pour in batter. Bake at 325-350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.
Cake is done when a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. When cake is completely cool, frost
with your favorite frosting. This cake is great with just whipped cream on top!

Ladies,

I'm terribly sorry, if any of you have already copied down the Chocolate Mayonaise Cake, there is a change to the measurements on the flour and baking soda. I have already edited them and the correct amounts are in red.

I'm glad I just made this and caught my mistake! :blush:

Okay Arlene, I won't tell! ;) I'm glad your family liked it.

Mom says the other cake is my grandma's too. Now I know why the original recipe was so big. Grandma had 10 children and 7 were boys! :yikes:

**Edited** Yes Arlene you may! It is really the only name I answer to usually! :laugh:
