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 were a big hit! I double the recipe and made cake for dinner with my parents and cupcakes for a Saturday night with the girls. They were well received by all! I made a simple butter cream frosting and topped them all with coconut. Very tasty!

This is my favourite cake I've ever made! I cut back on the sugar only a little, just to taste, and made a lemon buttercream frosting to top.
The texture was fantastic as well.

I'm unable to eat these cupcakes because they contain flour (i'm gluten intolerant) but they aren't for me anyway...They look good though!  I'll take pictures once I get them decorated and upload.  Sure do smell good...

I don't know... if it wasn't for the fondant I don't think i would have ate it. Even with all the goodies like fresh berries it still wasnt as good as everyone was making it out to be.  :-\ Its kinda disappointing considering I worked ALL DAY on it.

Well, your cake LOOKED beautiful at least!! :-) Good work!

thanks! :)>>>

I also change my mind, maybe it was because I was near sugar all day but this cake is sooooooooooooooooo much better the day after. Seriously moist sweet goodness <3  ;)b
