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
4 eggs
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.  Amish Chocolate Frosting

    1. Always taste so much better made from scratch over the box. I have a chocolate frosting I will be posting next to go along with the cake. So yummy. You can see the finished cake.

    1. I am all about home cooking, growing our own food, saving money and eating really good food. Hope your daughter enjoys.

  1. This looks easy enough to whip up and I love the taste of vanilla. We have an egg allergy in the house, so I wonder how this would do with a substitute (such as a potato starch alternative or banana).

    1. Baking soda and baking powder. Some of the box mixes have lost the ability to rise because lack of these two. Mostly because been on shelf to long. Always use freshest ingredients.

  2. Hi Candy, what you said is so true! Why buy from outside when you can have the sweet pleasure of making it from what you have in the kitchen, all from scatch…
