How to make perfect Vanilla Cake?

In order to start making this vanilla cake you have to sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl and whisk together. After, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar, and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, two at a time, beating until each of them is incorporated before adding the next. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula when necessary. Add the flour mixture in four parts, alternating with the milk in three parts, beating just until each addition is incorporated before adding the next. Be careful and do not over mix. You do not want to have this Vanilla cake too hard.

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line the bottom of each cake pan with parchment paper. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and spread it so that it is smooth in the pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes.

How to cut Vanilla Cake into layers?

If you need to cut Vanilla Cake into two pieces or layers, you can definitely do that with a knife. Just place one hand on top of the cake to steady it and with the other hand, using a long serrated knife, begin slicing through the cake with a gentle sawing motion. Be sure to follow the line you scored into the cake, to form two even layers. Separate the two layers.
