Posted by SugarflowersI like to get everything out and ready before turning on the oven (to save energy). Using the bake-even strips makes for a beautiful cake.
- 3 cups cake flour 1 1/2 cups sugar 1 Tbsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 cup buttermilk 1 cup butter 2 eggs 2 tsp. vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Combine dry ingredients in mixer bowl; add 3/4 cup buttermilk and blend until just combined. Add room temperature butter, blend slowly, then blend on medium speed for 90 seconds. Add eggs and vanilla to remaining buttermilk. Add buttermilk mixture to batter in two batches, blending on low until just combined. Pour into prepared 9x13" pan or 2 - 8" round and 1 - 6" round pans. Bake at 350F for 35 minutes.
