World's BEST Yellow Cake...It's Not Bragging if it's True!

I just enjoyed some of this scrumptious cake this weekend.  I forget how delicious it is. It probably takes five minutes to assemble and doesn't require a mixer.  You'll never be tempted to use a mix after you taste this.
This is great for cupcakes, too.  It is moist and tender and will go well with almost any frosting.
½ cup water
2 tablespoons buttermilk powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix and set aside.
Cream the sugar, oil and butter.
2 cups granulated sugar
½ cup oil
¼ cup (½ stick) melted butter
1 egg
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
Add the buttermilk mixture. 
Add dry ingredients and mix. 
2 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pour in water and mix well.
1 cup boiling water
Bake in greased and floured 9x13 pan at 350˚ for 35 minutes. Bake cupcakes 20 minutes.
Ginger is wearing this gorgeous gown for the Hip Chic's Valentine's Ball. After appearing on the arm of Tyler Rathbone for the last month, the designers are literally begging her to wear their fashions.  This lovely silk dress and matching evening purse was the ultimate winner.  At this rate, she'll need another closet...and who doesn't?
