When it comes to baking, we’ll happily accept and thoroughly enjoy just about any delicious treat at all. If we’re the ones doing the baking, however, we tend to nearly always choose to make a cake! There’s just something so satisfying about making a beautiful whole piece that you can then split into pieces to share with your loved ones. Which flavour of cake is our favourite changes all the time, but recently we’ve been on a complete binge of the simplest tasting kind; we just can’t get enough vanilla cake! That might not sound like the most exciting thing ever, but we think you’ll be surprised to learn how many different types of vanilla cake there are to make out there, and just how subtly different each one can taste.
Just in case you love vanilla cake as much as we do, here are 15 different recipes for your favourite thing, each one as delicious and worth trying as the last!
1. Vanilla sponge cake with vanilla buttercream icing
We all know people who love cake but aren’t really big fans of icing. We guess we can understand the logic behind that but, personally, we’ve always loved icing so much that we happen to operate on a policy of the more icing, the better! We doubt you’ll be surprised to learn, then, that we’ve made this delicious sponge cake smothered in vanilla buttercream icing several times! Each time we serve this to our family, they can’t help asking for a second piece. Find the full recipe for both the cake and the icing on Sweety Salado.
2. Homemade fluffy vanilla cake with edible flower garnish
Rather than loving the icing the most, have you always mostly been in love with the satisfyingly fluffy cake texture that a vanilla cake features? Then we have a feeling this extra fluffy recipe from The Spruce is exactly what you’ve been looking for! We love the way they guide you clearly through the process of making the perfect sponge and even some icing with a hint of extra vanilla flavour, but we mostly love the idea of topping your cake with edible flowers to add a subtly sweet taste!
3. Super simple vanilla cake
Perhaps your baking skills are good but still at a beginner’s level so you’re looking for a recipe that will keep things as simple as your taste in flavour? Then here’s a nice, easy vanilla cake recipe that will have you baking way more often than you used to! Vanilla sponge, vanilla cream filling, and vanilla icing make this one delicious with every single bite, and we have Give Recipe to thank for that.
4. The best vanilla cupcake ever
Perhaps you live alone and, even though you love to share your baking with your friends, you find making large cakes kind of inconvenient for doing so? Then we have a feeling you’ll get along with this delicious vanilla cupcake recipe a lot better! The delicious sponge cake texture and the creamy vanilla icing that you love most are all present, but in a hand-held version that you can pass out to the people you love without hassle.
