Favorite White/Yellow Cake

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup icy cold water (important)
1/2 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla (Madagascar vanilla gives a better vanilla flavor)
2 tablespoons lemon juice

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8" or 9" cake pan. In a bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt until very light and airy, about 3 times.
2. In a small bowl, combine cold water, oil, and vanilla. Add liquid ingredients (except lemon juice) to dry and combine. Once the batter is combined, add the lemon juice and stir quickly then pour into prepared pan.
3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake tests done with toothpick.
This recipe tastes like a typical omni vanilla cake. It rises extremely well and is light, fluffy, moist and rich at the same time.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

These turned out so perfectly and I'm a horrible baker. They were so fluffy and light and when you touched them it felt like poking a pillow. I am so keeping this recipe. I also made a plain vanilla frosting for it and added in blueberry pomegranate juice to give it a light purple color and some flavor. So yummy! And so perfect for the summertime.

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

This was the first white cake I ever made, let alone a VEGAN white cake. I will definitely stick with this as a base for my white cakes, because it was so heavenly (and easy)!

I used Homemade Vanilla Buttercream Cake Frosting from this site as the frosting and mmmm boy, delicious! I think I ate 75% of the cake (one layer), but that's because I baked this as my first vegiversary cake for Easter Dinner.

This is my absolute favorite cake recipe! It is so delicious. I have a tendency to under bake them, though, and then I get cake mush in the center. The toothpick method lies sometimes. So don't under bake it!  ;)b

Iced with this good stuff here: The Best Buttercream Frosting - It's an amazing, amazing, fluffy, ridiculously indulgent cake!

This makes a great birthday cake. It's moist and delicious! Even my family who ate this cake today who are not vegans loved the cake.

I did not like the texture or flavor of this cake. Sorry.

I didn't have any way of sifting the ingredients so it probably wasn't as fluffy as it could be but otherwise it was great! I made a Jackson Pollock cake with it!

I did however have pineapple juice, and baking powder, which is what i used.

ty for the idea, Willowflower! Yea, I used pineapple juice instead of lemon juice, raw sugar, and whole wheat flour. They look more like muffins but taste like a muffin/cupcake hybrid...still delicious!
