Vanilla White Cake

Brenda Downey


I made this cake for the first time several days ago, and it was probably the most delicious white cake I have made! I love white cake with butter cream frosting..this is my favorite type of cake, but I love them all. I am a cake! This recipe is from Rebecca Weber (Foods That Really Schmecks by Edna Staebler)..I just had to post it on JAP site, so I can always have this recipe for future preparations! I also recommend using Sherry Symmonds, 'Yummy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting' on this cake, since her frosting is soo delicious, but any frosting can be used.
