My standard Vanilla Cake works well in making either a 2 layered Cake or 24 cupcakes.
It’s really a classic recipe that’s beyond basic but perfect in every way.
The reason I like this recipe is because it’s not too sweet which makes up for the sweetness of the frosting.
3 cups flour
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 cup Butter (Softened)
2 teaspoon Vanilla
Preheat oven 175 degrees C (350 degrees F)
In a bowl combine All ingredients except Eggs.
Mix with an electric mixer until it’s all combined.
Add Eggs one at a time and continue mixing.
Remove from oven and let cool before frosting.
My favorite ButterCream frosting will elevate the taste to the next level!
Special “Butter” Tip
If you’re anything like me and have to make a cake in between your other daily plans then you generally don’t have time to let butter come to room temperature and be naturally softened.
Use this tip! Slice butter into several cubes and microwave for 20 seconds at a time until its soft but not melted. It’ll also make it easier to measure.
