Vanilla Velvet Cake
If you leave the cake in a few minutes longer, it will have a pleasant buttery crunch on the outside and fluffy on the inside. If you take it out a few minutes before, it will be a denser cake yet still very enjoyable.
This is a perfect cake all on its own or you can use filling. Frosting is a choice but not needed. Even a glaze is delicious on this or a mere dusting of powdered sugar.
Delicate enough for a ladies tea and rounded enough for a manly man. :-)
