Easy and Delicious White Cake Recipe

white cake

Having recipe cards that detail homemade recipes is a dated idea in the age of the Internet where everything you need is already available online. But I have always loved the idea. It’s easy to look up a recipe online if you need it, but there’s always an air of uncertainty – you’ve never tried it before so how can you be sure that it’s going to be something you like? That’s why it’s still a great idea to have a handful of tried and trusted recipes in your repertoire so you’ll be ready for any situation.

Here’s a basic white cake recipe that you can use whenever the occasion calls for cake. And when should cake not be involved? Whether you’re hosting a dinner party, baking a cake for a loved one’s birthday or wanting to bring dessert to a holiday party, this white cake recipe will be your go-to. It’s easy to make, and tastes better than anything out of a box.

You can use this recipe to bake it as a cake in a 9×9 cake pan, but it also yields 12 cupcakes. You can add fruit or sprinkles to the batter to jazz it up a little, but this cake is also perfect on its own. Decorate it with your favourite frosting and toppings and enjoy!


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9×9 pan or line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. Combine the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add to the sugar, butter, and egg mixture and mix well.
  4. Stir in the milk until the batter is smooth.
  5. Add to your baking pan or muffin tin. If you’re making a cake, bake for 30 – 40 minutes. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes if making cupcakes. To double check if it’s done, insert a tooth pick in the centre. If it comes out clean, you’re good.

Tip: Allow the cake to cool to room temperature before decorating with frosting.
