Cake recipes are a classic dessert that everyone loves. Whether it’s a birthday, a holiday, or just a Sunday afternoon, a delicious cake is always a great way to celebrate. But if you’re new to baking, you may be wondering what kind of cake recipe to try. Here’s a simple white cake recipe that you can make with just a few ingredients.

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

– 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
– 1 3/4 cups sugar
– 4 large eggs
– 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
– 1 cup milk

To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease two 9-inch round cake pans.

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

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in three batches, alternating with the milk. Mix until just combined.

Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely before frosting. Enjoy!
