Vanilla Cake Recipe



  • All purpose flour – 2 cups
  • Baking powder – 1 ¼ tsp
  • Baking Soda – ¾ tsp
  • Salt – ½ tsp
  • Sugar – 1 ½ cups
  • Oil – 1 cup ( I used sunflower oil)
  • Eggs – 2
  • Vanilla essence – 1 ½ tsp
  • Butter Milk/ Curd – 2/3 cup
  • Milk – 1/2 cup


(Note: 1 Cup = 250 ml.

When ever you are mixing for the cake with hand or hand mixer, you should mix in one direction only to get soft cakes.

The consistency of butter milk should be same as that of dosa batter. It should not be thin

All Ingredients should be at room temperature. Make sure egg, buttermilk/curd etc to be kept out of fridge so that it comes to room temperature

Make sure your oven settings are correct, else cakes wont come proper even though recipe is correct)


Method: (With Step-by-Step Pics)


Preheat oven to 175 degree. Line two 9 inch cake pan with baking sheet (butter paper) and keep it ready.



In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.



In a large bowl take sugar and oil. Mix with a mixer in high speed until its combined well



Mix in the eggs one at a time in high speed



Add vanilla essence



Add the dry ingredients to it, little at time (about 2 Tbsp) mixing after each addition, just until combined. (all step from this step should be done in low/medium speed)



When you are start finding it difficult to mix start adding butter milk (dosa batter consistency) and mix



Add milk little at a time and mix until combined.



Batter is ready (The batter prepared will be runny, it should freely fall from the spoon)



Pour the batter evenly into the cake pan.



Bake for 40- 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.



Remove the cake from the pan and let it cool. I frosted the cake with Fresh Cream (Recipe Here with Step-by-Step Pics). Enjoy!!!!
