Vanilla Cake Recipe

(adapted from KitchenAid)
Yield: 4 cups of batter


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup low-fat (1%) milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs

Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes


In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the dry ingredients. Add butter cut into small cubes, a few cubes at a time, and mix until the batter appears grainy with a sand-like texture to it. Next, add the eggs and and mix until just combined. Slowly add the milk, and the vanilla.
Grease two 9″ round cake pans, or one 9″x13″ cake pan at 350F for 30-35 or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, remove from pan, and cool completely on a wire wrack. Frost as desired.
