In all its crowning glory (and after plenty recipe testing catastrophes), I present you with vanilla cake perfection. I worked hard to develop what I believe to be the best vanilla cake recipe and after 1 taste, I bet you'll agree! This NEW recipe is on my blog today

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 and 2/3 cups (420g) cake flour* (spoon & leveled)

DIRECTIONS
