Easy White Cake

There are lots of basic recipes that I think are handy to have on hand. And one is an easy and quick white cake. Maybe you don’t have a cake mix and you still wanted to make cupcakes. Or make a trifle that has a white cake in it. Or layered cake. This is that kind of recipe. It’s one that comes from my grandma. She made it up a few years ago.

It is quick and easy and makes a moist cake with a nice crumb.

Easy White Cake

Ingredients

  • 2 2/3 cup cake flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar + 1/2 cup
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 3/4 cup milk + 1/4 cup milk
  • 5 eggs separated

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine cake flour, baking powder, salt and 1 cup sugar in a mixing bowl and mix well.
  3. Add in oil and 3/4 cup milk. Beat together. It'll be really stiff.
  4. Add in egg yolks and 1/4 cup milk and vanilla. Beat that until smooth. (Should be quite thin.)
  5. In another bowl beat up your 5 egg whites until stiff and slow add 1/2 cup sugar and beat until it turns to a stiff meringue. The fold the cake flour mix into the egg whites. (Don't beat it - just fold it in.)
  6. Bake in a preheated oven until top is golden brown or a toothpick into the middle comes out clean. Works well for cupcakes (13-15 minutes) or round cakes (20-23 minutes).
