Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3 9-inch cake pans and set aside.
Pour batter into the prepared cake pans and bake for 30 minutes (until the cake is golden on top and toothpick comes out clean). Allow to cool on racks for 20 minutes. Remove from pans and allow to cool fully before frosting.
