Moist White Cake

This cake tastes like a sugar cookie.

Moist White Cake

  • 2 2/3 c. cake flour
  • 1 ½ + 2 tbsp. superfine sugar (you can make this in your blender, or shrug your shoulders and use regular sugar)
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 c. butter, softened
  • 4 egg whites + 1 whole egg
  • 1 c. milk or 3/4 c. sour cream+1/4 c. water (we use the sour cream)
  • 2 tsp. powdered vanilla

Preheat your oven to 350º. Grease and flour 2 9″ round cake pans, and line the bottom with parchment. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg whites to stiff peaks. In another small bowl, whisk dairy product and whole egg together. In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar till fluffy. Add dry ingredients and milk alternately, beating on low after each mixture. Gently fold in egg whites. Pour into prepared pans, and bake for 20-25 minutes.  Cool and ice with decorator’s icing.

  1. Is powdered vanilla much stronger than liquid? I used liquid vanilla, and the cake tasted very bland, not nearly sweet enough. I added more sugar to the batter and it came out great!! Maybe just my personal taste buds??
