Easy and Moist Vanilla Cake Recipe: A Classic Favorite

Introduction

Indulge in the timeless delight of this easy and moist vanilla cake recipe. Perfect for any occasion, it's a classic favorite that never fails to impress.

Gather Your Ingredients

For this vanilla cake recipe, you'll need all-purpose flour, sugar, eggs, butter, milk, vanilla extract, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.

Prepare Your Pan

Preheat your oven and prepare your cake pans by greasing and flouring them. This ensures that the cake releases easily after baking.

Cream Butter

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This step creates a light and tender crumb in the finished cake.

Add Eggs and Vanilla

Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Mixing well after each addition ensures a smooth and well-incorporated batter.

Alternate Dry 

Gradually add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt) to the creamed mixture, alternating with the milk. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.

Bake to Perfection

Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops. Bake in the preheated oven until the cakes are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool and Frost

Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely. Once cooled, frost with your favorite frosting or enjoy as-is.
