This is a great moist white cake. Nice flavor and not to sweet . light and fluffy especially if cake flour is used. All purposes will work it will just not be as fluffy. Still good thou! You don't have to use clear vanilla extract. That is only to keep it a cleaner white color. The one pictured I made during quarantine and clear wasn't available luckily I had my big bottle of pure lol THis is a great one for a wedding cake. Mmm with a French butter cream!
