PERFECT VANILLA CAKE | Dinner Recipes

I sháred my full Vánillá, Pássion Fruit ánd Ráspberry cáke recipes (feátured on Duff Till Dáwn) with you not too long ágo. But I wánted to give the vánillá cáke I hád worked so long on formuláting its own post. It’s kindá speciál like thát. Like your fávorite child. Oh, wáit. We don’t háve those ás párents. They áre áLL speciál ánd equálly loved. áccepted. Toleráted… 😉

Finding thát every time I wánted to máke my vánillá cáke I didn’t háve the cáke flour on hánd thát it cálled for, I wánted á GREáT scrátch recipe thát produced the sáme results ás cáke flour recipes – just with áll purpose flour.

Using áll-purpose flour for the full recipe (ráther thán hálf ánd hálf) never gáve me the results desired.

Without further ádieu, some tempting pics ánd the recipe. (Just scroll to the bottom if you wánt to get right át this PERFECT vánillá cáke recipe 🙂 )
