Super Moist vanilla Cake / Never fail cake

 When I saw the title as "Never fail cake " in Cooking Is Easy blog,I cudn't resist myself from doing.The pictures were so impressing too.This is a full proof recipe and can never fail at any point,if u follow the recipe fully.This is originally a Betty Crocker recipe.Today I didnt plan to do.Rohith was getting bored and was asking for cake.So this recipe struck me and prepared along with Rohith.He was very helpful as u see in the collage.He likes to beat the cake all by himself.I was literally pulling the beater from him .The outcome was so perfect and all of us enjoyed it thoroughly.The cake was too fluffy and moist. It  was just like the store bought one.See this link for converting weight into grams .

Pans:
Use two 8 inch pans
Ingredients:
1.All-purpose flour    -                2 1/4 cups  
2.Sugar                        -                1 1/2 cups  
3.Butter                       -                1 stick  (8 tbsp / 4 oz /  1/2 cup)
4.Milk                         -                 1 1/4 cup 
5.Salt                           -                 1 tsp
6.Vanilla Extract          -                 1 1/4 tsp
7.Baking pwdr              -                 3 1/2 tsp
8.Eggs                           -                 3

Method:
* Pre- heat the oven for 350 degrees Farenhiet.
* Sift all purpose flour with salt and baking powder.Mix them well and keep it aside.
* Bring butter to room temperature.
* Take a mixing bowl,add butter and sugar.Beat them well.My son was very helpfull in beating the mix.
* Add eggs and vanilla extract.Let us beat them at high speed untill,it becomes fluffy.The more we beat,the more fluffiness we can get in the cake.
* Add the milk and beat the mix once or twise,just to make sure the milk is blended well into the mix.
*  Now bring ur beater to slow speed and add the flour mix.Slowly fold the mix and let it get mixed well without any lumps.Dont beat it.Just fold in.Because,if u beat it hard after adding the flour,then your cake wil not rise.
* The quantity ,I have mentioned here makes a really big cake.So take two round pans or a single large rectangle pan ,grease them first with butter.Then flour them .This helps the cake to rise a bit.
* Pour the batter in each cake pan and bake it for 35 to 40 mins or untill the fork comes out clean.Bake the cakes in batches.
* Transfer it to the wire rack and cool completely.
* Cut the cake into cubes and store it in a air tight container.(Sorry for the rough cuts on the cake.Rohith was doing all the mess while he was cutting it).

Note:
* The cake will rise upto 1/4 the size.So use a larger pan.
* Pre heat the oven for atleast 20 mins.
* While pouring the batter into the pan,fill it 3/4 the the space as the cake will rise a lot.
*Each oven has different settings,so bake the cake ,untill toothpick comes out clean.
* To convert cups to grams ,take 1 cup of all purpose flour ,that roughly equivalent to 140 gm.

The texture is amazing. I bake gluten free so I never see anything like this. I find my cakes are tighter.

When do you add the milk? I thought it went with the butter and sugar mix, but it ended up like soup batter. Please tell me where the milk is supposed to come in.
Thanks!

savitha ramesh said...

@ Anonymous,
thanks for trying out thi recipe.Sorry for not mentioning the addition of milk.After we beat the butter and sugar,then add milk.dont beat it too much,after adding milk.Then lastly add the flour.

Sherry Cardin said...

You mention milk in the ingredients however i didn't see that milk is added in the directions. I've seen this in other recipes on your site. Is milk used?

savitha ramesh said...

Thank u Sherry for taking ur time to tell me this.Yes we have to add milk ,before we add the flour.I have updated the post.Plz let me know,where I have not mentioned in other posts.I take care to edit every post perfectly,but at times could not be 100%.Sorry for the trouble.

Anonymous said...

It burnt on top and is soggy inside. Shame really as I followed instructions perfectly!

savitha ramesh said...

Hello anonymous,
It would be better,if u would have given your name.Have you baked in a good baking pan ? Is your oven preheated to 350 degrees farenhiet? Have you cooked the cake till the tooth pick comes out clean ? Because,this is more important than baking for 35 - 40 minutes. As the settings of one oven differs from other.And at last,have you greased the pan?Because,there are less chance for this cake to fail.I have tried many times ,so also my friends.

Thanks for this post. I have been searching and trying out several super soft and moistvanilla cake recipes with no success.
This was a total Winner!!!Thumbs up!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for this post. I tried this recipe and it turned out hard. I think it is a problem with my measurement. Can u pls give an equivalent in grams? Thank you.

taiba said...

My cakes almost always ended up with burnt tops until I read on 'Joy of baking' that you're only supposed to heat ur oven from the bottom for baking. That is do not switch on the upper heating element of ur oven just use the lower one. My cakes have never burnt ever since, the tops are perfect and levelled too they don't even crack any more.
Hope this helps

Torera said...

Thank you soooo much for this amazing recipe. I've never had fluffier cakes ever. Turned out just right.

Savitha Ganesan said...

deepthiis said...

Savitha,

I tried it out with half the measurements as i dint want to make too much cake.It came out awesome..I added some chocolate chips on the request of my little 6 yr old helper...Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe.One additional request,is there a recipe for a never fail chocolate cake?I have tried many recipes but they all came up not as good

Keep up the good work,
Deepthi

Savitha said...

Thanks for trying this recpe .Sure I do have a choc cake.Will post it soon.

Anonymous said...

Well, I tried the cake. And it turned out...very oddly.

It looked like corn bread when it came out. When I gave a piece to my Dad, he asked, "How much salt did you put in?" I'd double checked several times on the salt. It was the right amount. And yet...it came out salty.

And finally, it tasted like corn bread. Really weird. For once, I'm pretty sure I didn't mess the recipe up. And yet...I have salty corn bread.

I think he was making the salty part up though; I actually am enjoying the cake a lot. I made it into a coconut tres leche cake, so...it's coconut tres leche corn bread. :)

Hi,

Rather than plain flour and baking powder, can I forgo the baking powder and use self raising flour only? Not sure whether the results will come out the same. I am after a moist cake so looking forward to trying this =)

Thanks,

Jo

Hi anonymous,
I would advice you not to mess up with the ingredients. We cannot judge the outcome then.

raji said...

Really wanna try out ths cake..just to b perfect n rite on the ingredients...xactly hw much butter (one stick)is used? n olso, wil the baking tym b 30mins even if i try with haf of the above qtys?

Savitha Ganesan said...

Hi raji,
I have updated the post with the amount of butter.If it is half the quantity,then chk the cake between 20 - 25 minutes roughly. If the tooth pick comes out clean, then our cake is done.

raji said...

Thnk u sooo much! :-) me gona bake rite away...cnt wait!
