Bethany's StoryDuring the summer I teach a baking and cooking camp to students from 2nd through 8th grade. At the end of cooking camp we teach the students some basics of baking and let them make a cake and then decorate it. This year my camp's head instructor found this recipe, so I can't take claim as my own even if i wish I could. :) It is my favorite cake and anyone who has tasted it claims it is their favorite as well. Trying it, you will NOT regret it and it's super easy!!
This tastes great with store bought icing or home made icing if you're up for the messy task. I make it with Buttercream icing; you can find the recipe for that here as well.
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 - 2 Tbsp
milk (1 to 2 depending on consistency that the icing is taking)
2In a large bowl, beat the sugar, milk, oil, egg, and vanilla until well blended.
3Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
4Gradually add to sugar mixture until blended.
5Pour into a greased 9 -in square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
6Cool on a wire rack. Serve with fruit or ice cream if desired. Can make about 8 - 9 servings.
8In a large bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency.
