simple cake mix (from scratch) ??

Posted by   + Show Post

 I love to cook and I have a strong desire to bake but I'm not a baker at all other than making what's in the box. LOL! I would love if anyone knows how to make a simple cake mix that a beginner like myself can master.

 Simple White Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cupwhite sugar

  • 1/2 cupbutter

  • 2eggs

  • 2 teaspoonsvanilla extract

    • 1 1/2 cupsall-purpose flour

    • 1 3/4 teaspoonsbaking powder

    • 1/2 cupmilk

    • Directions

      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
      2. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.
      3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.

      I got this from http://www.allrecipes.com/   Seems pretty simple.

    I made a cake from scratch one time and although it was pure coincidence, my husband took it to work and later that day a stomach bug hit and a few of the guys, including my husband, got sent home throwing up. I mean, it wasn't my cake because it was also guys who had not eaten it but I vowed then and there to stick with boxed cake mixes...at least for a while. haha :(

    These recipes are awesome! Gonna write them down. I love to bake from scratch. I just jumped right in and started with easy recipes and worked my way up to the hard ones. Still learning. And my family loves being my guinea pigs. You'll do fine. Now, gonna write these down.
