A Recipe for Homemade White Cake

White cake is a classic and elegant dessert that is perfect for any special occasion. It has a light and fluffy texture and a delicate vanilla flavor that makes it a favorite among both kids and adults. Here is a recipe for making a delicious white cake at home:


For the cake:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the buttercream frosting:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until creamy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it comes to a simmer. Remove the milk from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk mixture and mixing well after each addition.
  5. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared cake pans. Tap the pans lightly on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
  6. Bake the cakes for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cakes cool in the pans for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. While the cakes are cooling, make the buttercream frosting. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Gradually add the confectioners’ sugar, mixing well after each addition. Add the heavy cream and vanilla extract and continue to beat the frosting until it is smooth and fluffy.
  8. Once the cakes are completely cooled, place one layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of frosting over the top of the cake, then top with the second layer of cake. Repeat with the third layer of cake and frosting. Use the remaining frosting to frost the sides of the cake.
  9. You can decorate the cake with additional frosting, sprinkles, or any other desired toppings.
