Posted by DecoratedDreamsI love vanilla and just started experimenting! Creates a nice light cake.
- For Cake: 1 box DH French Vanilla mix 3 vanilla beans scraped - Madagascar Bourbon preferred 1 cup flour 1 cup sugar 1 cup sour cream 1/3 cup vegetable oil 1 1/3 cup water 4 large eggs 2 tsp vanilla emulsion - NOT EXTRACT For Filling: 1 lb cream cheese room temp 1/2 cup sugar - not powdered 1 tsp vanilla pure extract 1 vanilla bean scraped 1/2 cup heavy cream
To make the cake - blend all the ingredients and mix :) Makes about 3 - 8" rounds, 2- 9" rounds. Bake at 350 Degrees - I have found 38 minutes works pretty well for the 8" rounds. To make the filling, in a bowl, combine the cream cheese, granulated sugar, and vanilla. Add the scraped seeds from the vanilla bean and place directly into cream cheese mixture. Add the heavy cream and continue to beat until fluffy. It is super yummy.
