Simple Vanilla Cake Recipe

A good Vanilla Cake is a must have recipe for any home Baker. The lightly crisp crunch on the outside and a soft fluffy center make this vanilla cake recipe my all time favorite and most turned to when I need something sweet, simple and elegant.

Perfect iced for birthday cakes and cupcakes, sugar dusted or drizzled with warm custard on a cold night. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
