Me and my long titles, I know! But seriously…..just LOOK! 🙂
I mean that’s like a story on it’s own. I don’t even have to write a blog post but I will of course 🙂 because you guys MUST make this cake! You must! No thinking, no waiting, just make it! Please 🙂
This is the most amazing vanilla cake I’ve ever eaten! it’s so fluffy and moist, it’ll make you second guess yourself that you actually made it from scratch! It’s super easy too with no fancy ingredients or complicated techniques.
I used the standard creaming method here because I wanted ultimate fluffiness. Make sure the butter and sugar is well creamed as this adds lots of air to the cake making it nice and light.
Whole eggs are used for richness and tons of vanilla to give you that wonderful heavenly vanilla-y dreamy flavour. Seriously though I add 4 teaspoons, this may sound like alot but I promise it isn’t. You can use a combination of vanilla beans and extract too.
For the only-in-your-dreams cake texture, I used both oil and sour cream to ensure the ultimate moist crumb. Lots of milk too for that extra fluffy and vanilla cake texture.
This cake is so perfect that the layers come out pretty flat so you don’t need to level them, it’s a delight! I was very surprised that these layers bake so well, I thought that only my chocolate cake was that perfect! The layers are such a good base to so many fillings and frostings, I’ll be making more posts with chocolate and strawberry frostings for sure 😉
It’s a very forgiving recipe and easily adaptable so you guys can play around with it to your hearts desire. Make it denser, less moist, more yellow whatever you like!
I love this cake so very much and although everybody has their own tastes and preferences, I sincerely hope that this is one that is enjoyed. I’m pretty sure that this is my favourite cake on my blog and that says ALOT especially when I take this cake into consideration 😉
Please do let me know how it turns out if you make it and tag me with your pics @dutchbakerblog on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter 💙
I am so very proud of this cake because it has turned vanilla cake haters into vanilla cake lovers! <3
Here is the cupcake version of this cake.
I’m going to try this cake. I’m looking for a better vanilla cake, this looks like it might be it.
Side note, My Dad is also The Dutch Baker, he’s in Moncton, NB, Canada.
Hey thanks for trying the cake, I hope you love it!! 😊
That is cool about your dad, bet he’s an awesome baker! The Dutch Baker does sound more like I’d be a guy instead of a girl doesn’t it 😂
Definitely the softest and moistest vanilla cake, and a wonderful not to sweet, satiny buttercream. However, cake is so soft that it crumbles a bit if/when you dip fork into a piece and lift it. I am not too surprised though because for that quantity of flour, the cake could easily have more than 3 eggs. I may suggest 5 eggs instead of 3. However, this is a really delicious cake and it is indeed extremely soft and moist. The buttercream is delicious too.
Hi Regine, thank you for your lovely comment. I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the cake and buttercream! You can try to increase the egg but i wouldn’t suggest too much as then it will be too much liquid in the cake. For the quantity of 3 eggs make sure you’re using large eggs. Happy baking!
