Classic Vanilla Cake



Total Time: 2 hours 45 minutes

Yields: 3 layers

Level: Intermediate



3 cups flour

2 cups white granulated sugar

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 milk

6 eggs

4 sticks of butter

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


In your stand mixer, mix together your butter and sugar for eight minutes. Two at a time, add your eggs in, wait 30 seconds until adding the next two. When all combined throw in vanilla extract, baking  powder and salt in. Split your flour and milk into 3 equal parts. First pour in the first part of milk, then your first part of flour. Continue this step two more times. This will ensure a smooth cake and absolutely no clumps.

You can use any type of pan you want but, make sure to line it with parchment paper to make sure nothing sticks. Place this in the oven at 350 degrees (Fahrenheit.) There are two tricks to know when your cake is ready. First press the top of the cake down softly and if it immediately pops back up its cooked. The second way is to get a tooth pick and stick it in the cake and pull it out, if there are little to no crumbs your cake is ready.
