vanilla cake

The Best Vanilla Cake




King Arthur is my go-to flour.

Make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature.

Bake your cake layers ahead and freeze them.  They will last in the freezer for two months is properly wrapped.  Wrap twice in saran wrap and once in heavy duty foil. To defrost, remove from freezer and allow to come to room temperature.  Don’t unwrap the cake layer until they have defrosted.

No buttermilk?  No problem. To make a substitute add 1 TBSP of either lemon juice or vinegar and add enough milk to measure 1 cup.  Gently stir the mixture and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
