Homemade Vanilla Cake

I like recipes that are easy to make and don’t require a lot of special ingredients who doesn’t right?  Not to mention it’s super nice to have something on hand to throw together at last minute.  The great thing about this bread you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen right now which makes this a frugal recipe!  And to make it a frugalistic recipe you can go here and learn how to make the Homemade Vanilla Extract!

Homemade vanilla cake 2


2 Cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

½ cup butter at room temperature

1 ¼ cups sugar

2 large eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup milk

Pre­heat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan. In a medi­um bowl, whisk togeth­er flour, bak­ing pow­der and salt. In a large bowl, cream togeth­er but­ter and sug­ars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, adding them one at a time, fol­lowed by vanil­la extract. Stir in half of the flour mix­ture, fol­lowed by the milk. Add in remain­ing flour mix­ture, stir­ring just until no streaks of dry ingre­di­ents remain. Pour into pre­pared pan. Bake for 50-55 min­utes, or until a tooth­pick insert­ed into the cen­ter of the cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool in the pan for 5 min­utes, then turn it out onto a wire rack to cool com­plete­ly.
Makes 1 loaf. Serves 8-10.
