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.

  • 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.

This really is extremely easy to bake. I had to add a little more flour in the end as suggested in step 2 because it was a little runny. However, I was impressed with the little effort I had to make to get it smooth. I personally ran into a few issues with my oven, totally unrelated to the recipe: the tray was misaligned and the cake kind of skewed so half of it was already done and getting burned a little, so I had to take it out and unfortunately the other half was undone. I'm letting it cool down as I write this and I'm hoping it will cook itself with the heat from the inside. Anyway, I did slice a small piece to try it out and it's really good. I love sugar, but I need to take care of my dad so I needed a less sweet recipe and this definitely hit the mark. I'll be using this recipe more often. I might make some changes one day, but it's great as it is. Read More
