Perfect Vanilla Cake



 shared my full Vanilla, Passion Fruit and Raspberry cake recipes (featured on Duff Till Dawn) with you not too long ago. But I wanted to give the vanilla cake I had worked so long on formulating its own post. It’s kinda special like that. Like your favorite child. Oh, wait. We don’t have those as parents. They are ALL special and equally loved. Accepted. Tolerated…

INGREDIENTS

  • 16 oz all purpose flour
  • 2.5 tsp Baking powder
  • 22 oz granulated sugar
  • .75 tsp salt
  • 8 oz unsalted butter (1 cup or 2 sticks) room temp
  • 1.5 Tbsp vanilla bean paste or good quality real vanilla extract
  • 7 each Egg whites large, room temp
  • 12 oz milk whole, room temp
  • 1 oz Vegetable oil


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease sides and bottom of 2 – 8” round pans. My goop recipe is perfect for pan release.
  2. Add all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt) to a stand mixer bowl and mix with a paddle to combine well. This replaces sifting.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine all wet ingredients (vanilla bean paste, egg whites, milk, and vegetable oil) and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  4. Turn mixer to low and add chunks of butter slowly to the dry mix. Continue to beat on slow until there are no chunks of butter remaining and the mixture becomes crumbly.
