Easy Vanilla Cake Recipe

This Easy Vanilla Cake recipe is a classic and comes together in minutes. Even if you've never baked a cake from scratch, you will find this simple and achievable! #easyvanillacake #vanillacake #easycakerecipe #easyrecipe


  • 115 grams unsalted butter (or 1 stick) (softened - see notes)
  • 1 cup castor sugar (also known as superfine sugar)
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 2 cups plain (all purpose) flour (250 grams)
  • teaspoons baking powder (check the recommend amount for your brand of baking powder - see notes)
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.
  • Butter and line the base of an 20 cm/8in round deep cake pan then dust with flour to ensure the cake doesn't stick.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. I like to sift onto a sheet of baking paper to save washing up.
  • Place all ingredients into the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on low for 30 seconds.
  • Scrap the bowl with a rubber spatula to make sure all the flour has been incorporated. Be sure to scrape the bottom - sometimes the mixer blade doesn't full incorporate the ingredients at the bottom.
  • Mix again this time on medium speed for 3 minutes. The cake batter should lighten in color and be thick and creamy.
  • Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, tap the pan on the kitchen bench to remove excess air bubbles and place into the oven.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes. It will be cooked when the cake no longer jiggles, is coming away from the side of the pan, springs back when pressed and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out on a wire rack. Flip so that it is up the right way and allow to cool.
  • A simple dusting of powdered sugar is all it needs. Can be served warm or cool. Best eaten with 3 days.
