Cake recipe in Pencil Sketch style


If you’re looking for a classic cake recipe, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re a novice baker or a seasoned veteran, you can’t go wrong with a classic Simple White Cake. This vanilla cake recipe has been a staple in kitchens for generations, and it’s easy to see why. It’s light and fluffy, moist and tender, and perfect for any occasion. Plus, it can be decorated however you’d like.

To make this classic cake recipe, you’ll need:

– 2 cups of all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon of baking powder
– ½ teaspoon of baking soda
– ¼ teaspoon of salt
– ½ cup of butter, softened
– 1 cup of granulated sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– 1 cup of buttermilk

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then stir in the vanilla extract.

Alternate adding the flour mixture and the buttermilk to the butter/sugar mixture, starting and ending with the flour. Beat until just blended and no lumps remain.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Decorate as desired and enjoy!
