CAKE, CAKE AND MORE CAKE – Below is my favorite Vanilla Cake Recipe – I have made several modifications and this is by far the best……
*This recipe yields 24 cupcakes or 3 nine inch round cakes
2 3/4 C. Cake Flour
1 1/4 Tea. Baking Soda
1 1/4 Tea. Baking Powder
1 Tea. Salt
1 C. Butter (2 sticks – room temp.)
2 Tea. Vanilla (you can also use 1 tea. vanilla and 1 tea. almond extract)
1 3/4 C. Sugar
1 1/2 C. Buttermilk (room temp.)
4 Egg Whites (room temp.)
Preheat over to 350 F – prepare baking pans of your choice
Using a mixer with paddle cream butter and sugar together – add in egg whites – whip for about 30 sec. add in vanilla.
In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt – slowly add flour mixture into wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk until both are incorporated – bake for about 25 min or until toothpick comes out clean – let cool in pans for 10 min then remove from pans – cool completely before decorating.
**Next week I will talk about some tips and tricks that I have learned while decorating and I will share some yummy buttercream recipes.
Happy Hump Day Y’all!!!
