This vanilla cake is like, the best cake I have ever made. It's not too bland, and it's not too sweet. This is great for all occasions and easy to do in your spare time.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch cake tin with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.

  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl. Add eggs, milk, and vegetable oil. Mix by hand or use an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Add more flour if batter is too runny. Pour into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour.

  • Remove from the oven and let cool, 15 to 30 minutes. Transfer to the refrigerator to chill slightly, 15 to 30 minutes more. Slice the cooled cake through the middle to make 2 layers.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute water for milk, if preferred.

Ok first thing i did was scale back the amount of flour because it calls for way too much. If you do this you really only need 1 1/2 cups of flour. If you make it with the amount it calls for you will need to add more milk because it is way to thick. If need to you can always add more. I personally went to baking and pastry school so i seen the scale of flour and knew it would be way to thick. Secondly i only made half the recipe because i wanted to try it out before my daughters birthday which is this coming week. I would for sure add just a little more sugar if you want a sweet cake though. If your looking for something not so sweet this is a good cake for you. Overall its a nice cake though. Read More

I added little more vanilla to this. It's really tick. And takes about an hour to cook dont really have add extra milk because of how long it takes to cook its a split cake so you need to add jam or jelly or frosting as my kids did Read More

Without a doubt the worst cake I have ever made and I am 62 years old and I've made a lot of cakes. Batter was so thick we could hardly use the blender in it. I am no chef or baker professionally but there is definitely something wrong with this recipe. My grandkids and I followed it very carefully. I signed up just so I could write this review. Something is wrong with it. Don't waste your time, or ingredients. Read More
