Dense yellow cake recipe

I had a dense yellow cake once from a bakery. It was incredible, and I would like to make one. Does anyone have a recipe for dense yellow cake?

Well, most of what I have eaten at parties is the store bought cake mixes. It is good, but I have had cake that was better. I guess it had less air in it or something. Kind of hard to explain.

Try this -

1-2-3-4 Cake

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 cups sifted self-rising flour
1 cup milk
2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour 3 (9-inch) cake pans. Using an electric mixer, cream butter until fluffy. Add sugar and continue to cream well for 6 to 8 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Add vanilla and continue to beat until just mixed. Divide batter equally among prepared pans. Level batter in each pan by holding pan 3 or 4 inches above counter, then dropping it flat onto counter. Do this several times to release air bubbles and assure you of a more level cake. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until done. Cool in pans 5 to 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto cooling racks. Cool completely and spread cake layers with your favorite frosting to make a 3-layer cake.

I like the store bought chocolate frosting for yellow cake. The homemade kind never seems to be as dark or smooth.

I don't think the 1-2-3-4 cake would be dense. It is very delicious however. Makes a great caramel cake with homemade caramel icing.
Was the cake a pound cake?

No, not a pound cake. It was a yellow cake with a white coconut icing.

If I say yes you're going to say it was pound cake, right? It was not any sweeter or moist than regular yellow cake.
