I improved this recipe so, it has been edited. I have been looking for a good white cake recipe for a long time, I must have tried 8-10 different ones. Didn't like the texture or flavor, of this one or that one, and then there are the ones that fell or were too crumbly to even frost. So, I threw together one of my own. And it only took three tries to get it right. LOL

How to Make Albino Dragonfly Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease and flour two 9 inch round pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  5. Stir the flour, salt and baking soda together in a small bowl
  6. Pour everything together in the large bowl with the butter, sugar, egg white mixture. Whisk smooth.
