No special ingredients are needed to make this homemade, from scratch delicious tasting Amish Vanilla Cake.
As you can see I am making a three-tier stack cake. Use you 9×13 pan or any pan you want.
There are no special dyes or added preservatives in this cake. Honestly it takes about 5 minutes extra to make over a box cake. So why spend money something when you already have all the ingredients you need right in your own kitchen.
Plus the taste is so much better.
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 stick butter or 1 cup
2 cups sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk (whole milk is what I use)
1/4 cup oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat three 8 inch or two 9 inch round cake pans with cooking spray.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Beat the butter and sugar together in a separate bowl. Add the oil, eggs and vanilla.
Turn you mixer on low and add 1/3 of the flour mixture, followed by half of the milk. Beat everything. Add the rest of the flour and milk and beat until combined for at least 1 minute.
Divide the batter equally between the cake pans.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the centers are set and a toothpick comes out clean.
Cool in cake pans for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to completely cool.
