Making your own wedding cake? This vanilla cake recipe makes 1 (25cm) round cake. Decorate with rolled icing or buttercream. Double the recipe if you are making a three tiered cake or use as a bottom layer if you plan on making different flavoured tiers.
I'm afraid on the whole this was a bit of a disaster! I had alarms bells ringing when I measured out the raising agents, I think that 1/4 tsp of baking powder and bicarb alongside plain flour is not quite right. The cake has a lovely flavour, but did not cook in the middle - it was quite solid in texture. It did rise but lacked the light texture you would expect. I used a 25cm round tin. - 12 Feb 2013
I love this cake!!! Very Nice Article… - 19 Jun 2017
I've made this cake several times & I always get rave reviews. Here are some changes I've made though.... Add 1/2 tsp. salt Add 1/8 Lemon extract Add 1-2 tsp. Almond extract I add the above in addition to the tablespoon of vanilla. I've also tried a flower nail in the middle to see if it cooks quicker. I'll let you know. A moist yummy dense cake! - 28 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
