Bea's Homemade White Cake
You can make this not only as a sheet cake but a layer cake as well as cupcakes. Use your favorite icing and you'll have a great cake.
Special Note: Set out the milk, eggs and butter on countertop an hour before starting cake. This allows them to be at room temperature for better results.
*This is not diet friendly but why not indulge ever now and then, right? 3/4/12

How to Make Bea's Homemade White Cake
- CAKE: Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray and set aside. I actually use Wilton Cake Release. I buy it at either Walmart or Michaels'.
In your stand mixer bowl add the first five (5) ingredients and whisk together until well combined. Add milk, butter and vanilla* (plus 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract if so desired) and beat on low speed to combine. Now turn on medium speed and beat for two (2) minutes, scraping down sides after the first minute. Add whole eggs(not just the whites) and continue beating for an additional two (2) minutes on medium speed.
- HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM:
Place measuring cup and beaters in the bowl you will be using and place in refrigerator for a couple of hours.
