Cake recipe in Pencil Sketch style

If you’re looking for an easy, classic cake recipe, then look no further than this Simple White Cake recipe. It’s a great base for any celebration cake, like a birthday or anniversary cake, or just a simple treat for any occasion. This vanilla cake recipe is light and airy, perfect for any sweet tooth.

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease two 8-inch round cake pans with butter.

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

In a separate bowl, cream together 1 cup of softened butter with 2 cups of white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with 1 cup of buttermilk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix until just combined.

Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans, and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely in the pans before turning out.

Once the cakes have cooled, you can frost them with your favorite frosting, or just dust them with a bit of powdered sugar. Enjoy!
