Vanilla Cake – Joy of Baking
Heeeeello, everyone. Welcome back to my blog. Another week, another blog. Today I am going to write about the Recipe of my Vanilla anniversary cake which I made about 2 weeks ago and as I promised to share the recipe of that cake so today is the day.
This is the second or maybe the third time I have tried my hands on baking and first time on frosting 😛 – Believe it or not! But this is the truth. Kashif was so impressed with the cake I tell you as soon as he was able to take a bite of the cake.
Jokes apart, the cake turned out really awesome. It was soft, moist, rich and divine. I was so happy that it turned out so well.
So I searched for the recipe and found one which had good reviews. I scanned the ingredients and realized that everything is handy in my kitchen and Tadaa, I was now ready to experiment 😛 Everything in this cake was vanilla flavored. I would use vanilla flavored flour if such existed! 😀
🍴 Serves up to 16 people
Cake Batter Ingredients: 🥄
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
Vanilla Buttercream 🍽️
Preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until thick
Drizzle in the oil while beating.
At low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk until the batter is smooth.
Put the batter into the pan and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Cool the cake on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then loosen the edges by running a knife along the sides, turn the cakes out onto the racks and cool for at least another hour before frosting.
For Vanilla Buttercream take a medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed.
Stir in vanilla and 3 tablespoons of the milk.
Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable.
If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time.
If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
There are many cakes that are perfect for celebrating Anniversaries and other special occasions but a two layer Vanilla Cake covered with Vanilla Buttercream is especially popular. I really like this Vanilla Cake’s sweet buttery flavor and light and moist texture. The frosting used to both fill and frost the cake. To further decorate the cake, you can pipe some of the frosting around the top and base of the cake in a pretty design.
And this is what it was prepared for 😉
