Great cake easy to make. First time used chocolate icing Second time making it. This time it is my foundation for a birthday ice cream cake. For a 13x9x1 glass pan I used 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes. Had to adjust baking time recipe time was browning cake before center could set . Still the best yellowcake recipe tasty and economical must I say versatile too. Thanks bgh test kitchen .
