Vanilla Cake Recipe / Best Vanilla Cake Recipe / Best White Cake Recipe



Finding a good cake recipes can be really difficult. But if you found one, then the recipe has to be kept under lock and keys. In my case it has to be in this blog. This is one of my no fail, vanilla cake recipe. I add tutti fruity or chocolate chips or even nuts in them and take it one step further. But my basic recipe is this one..


 I already have a vanilla cake recipe and a eggless vanilla cupcake recipe in this blog. This is another addition to my cakes folder. I made a three layered cake for one of my client, so i baked them in three cake tins and frosted. But if you think that you are not going to make frosting for it, then half the recipe or even you can bake it in a large cake tin.I hope you will try this recipe and let me know how it turns out for you..


Preparation Time : 15 mins
Baking Time : 25 to 30 mins
Makes : 9 Inch 3 layered Cake

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour / Maida - 3 cups / 360 grams
Sugar - 3 cups / 600 grams Powdered (I used granulated sugar)
Eggs - 5
Oil - 1 cup / 240 ml (I used refined oil)
Milk - 1/2 cup / 120 ml
Curd / Yogurt - 1/2 cup / 120 ml
Vanilla Essence - 1 tblspn
Baking Powder - 2 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 Degree C. Grease three 9 inch round cake pans with oil or butter well. Dust it with flour and coat on all sides, now tap off the excess flour and set aside.

Break open 5 eggs in a bowl and set aside. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in another bowl and mix well, set aside. Mix curd and milk in a jug and set aside.

Now take oil, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl, use a electric beater or handheld mixer to beat the mix till it is light and mixed properly.

Now add in 1 egg at a time and beat well.

Now add in half the flour mix and fold gently. Pour half the curd and milk mix and fold gently. Now add the remaining flour and curd milk mixture and fold well.

Now divide the batter between the cake pans and bake for 25 to 30 mins, or untill a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. Now invert the cake and frost it as you wish.

  9. Hi,

    What type of oven should I use to bake 2 cakes simultaneously. At present I use a convection oven which can fit only 1 cake at a time...

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Nivedhitha ArvindYes i used granulated sugar, you can use that too, but if you powder that before adding it will mix easily.

  16. i bakd dis cake exactly and it turned out pretty great in taste but it was not browned at the top.what should i do to get brown crust? i use morphy richards OTG.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @mahaI am not sure what went wrong. It may be because of the oven. I can give you one tip, if you need the brown crust, just place the cake under the grill for just 45 seconds to 1 min till it browned. Never leave it and go, always stay near it and keep a eye on it. DOnt cook more than a min or it will turn hard

    ReplyDelete

  25. Hi aarthi, made this cake today. Its tasted good and so soft. Now I can stop using butter anymore. Thanks for the recipe.
    But one thing, I baked in LG convection oven. At 23 min I stopped baking bcz its all cooked. After cooling I cut into pieces and stored in air tight container. After 10min or so I see little sticky texture on top which I don't see when baked. Should I need to bake little more. But inside its soft and not sticky..
    Waiting for ur reply..

    ReplyDelete
  26. @MadhuIt is because you have stored it in container before it is completely cooled. SO cool it completely before storing
