Yellow Cake

2 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons sea salt
1 1/2 cups Sucanat or organic sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13-inch cake pan.

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix with blender for a few minutes until smooth. Pour into the cake pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool and frost as desired.


1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups powdered sugar

Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whip with mixer for several minutes, until light and fluffy. Recipe can be doubled if more frosting is desired. This should be enough to frost one cake.
