Move over Betty and Duncan, I have something better! My recipes need a vanilla cake to then craft into the show-stopping and delicious dessert I intend to present. It is a simple recipe, to then make into what you envision - or keep it simple to complement some fresh fruit. You can only keep crafting new styles and tastes with this cake. Enjoy the endless possibilities. Watch Shena make her ice cream cone drip cake on Shena's Sweet Spice!

Ingredients (15)

Vanilla Cake

Buttercream Frosting

Start Cooking

Prepare the Cake

  1. Prepare two 10-inch cake pans (lined with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper). Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Separately combine milk and vanilla. Using an electric mixer combine the milk/vanilla, oil and sugar, then add in eggs.

  3. Next you will be adding the flour blend to the oil mixture in three parts, alternating with two parts of the milk mixture. Mix until just combined, but lump free.

  4. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans.

  5. Place the pans in the center of the preheated oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes. If a toothpick is inserted into its center it should come out dry. 

Note:

This recipe makes two 10-inch pans. If you desire a higher cake, just double the recipe and layer three, or four, cakes.

Prepare the Buttercream Frosting

Create a yummy topping with this easy and parve frosting for your vanilla cake! This frosting has made it on to my most celebrated cakes, with incredible memories as an added bonus! Celebrate all the reasons to smile with a great cake to mark that special moment!

Yields 5 cups of frosting

  1. Cream your shortening and butter with your electric mixer at medium speed.

  2. Scrape down the sides, then add vanilla and salt.

  3. Gradually add sugar, then meringue powder.

  4. Once well combined, add in milk.

  5. Cover with a damp towel if using the same day. If you’re preparing in advance for another day, refrigerate or freeze. Take out a few hours before using and use the paddle on an electric mixer to smooth before using to frost cake.

    Is there any substitute I can use instead of meringue powder?

Did you mean "combine the milk and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the oil. sugar and eggs"? This would make sense for next part. Please clarify. Thank you
