When split, this cake can be filled with cream for Boston Cream Pie, or Lemon Curd for a nice spring dessert

How to Make Basic One Layer White Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease and dust with flour a single 9-inch round cake pan for a single layer cake. Dust two if you are doubling the recipe for a layer cake.
  • 21. Cream the sugar, salt, and shortening together. Add the egg and beat until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla.
  • 32. In another bowl, mix the flour and baking powder together.
  • 43. Add about one-third of the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and mix briefly. Add about one-third of the milk and mix. Continue twice more with the remaining flour and milk. Do not over mix. Scrape the batter into the pan.
  • 54. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cake tests done with a toothpick.

    Let the cake rest in the pan for about five minutes and then remove it to a wire rack to continue cooling.
