The Best White Cake Recipe {Ever}


August9,2013byRobyn 1,072Comments

Okay, you asked for it. Ive gotten so many emails and comments asking for The Best White
Cake Recipe since I posted my The Best Chocolate Cake Recipe {Ever} a while back. Believe
me, I wasnt ignoring you.

The Best White Cake Recipe {Ever} - Cooking | Add a Pinch

Cake, so, I started working on trying to take the best of those two recipes while making the
cake decidedly white and perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, and yep, even weddings, if youd
like.

My son declared this white cake recipe as perfect while the Mister said, Now, thats cake.
Umm, from him, thats a good thing. I think.
My brother-in-law called me to tell me that this was to be his birthday cake every single year
until the year he dies. We had a good laugh at that one, but I have to remember each June to
make sure not to make him another version of cake on his birthday from this point forward.
Thats pressure, because the older I get, the less I seem to remember. Heh.
My white cake recipe is a sturdy recipe. Tender, yet moist and holds together well from cooling
to frosting to slicing and serving. It just works.
While many white cake recipes use only egg whites, I decided (after lots and lots of trying, mind
you) that I preferred the flavor that the whole egg lends to the cake. While the cake isnt stark
white, it is still white.
Make sense?

I used my Fluffy White Buttercream frosting, which I doubled, when I frosted the cake, but you
can really use whatever frosting is your favorite on this cake. Strawberry Buttercream Frosting,
Cream Cheese Frosting, Espresso Chocolate Buttercream Frosting? Any would be fabulous!
So, the next time you need a white cake recipe, give this one a try. I think youll love it!
Heres my White Cake Recipe. My family calls it the best. Ever.

Update: Due to varying results with the cake rising, I have updated the recipe to increase the
amount of baking powder. As with any recipe using baking powder, youll want to make sure it
is fresh and double acting. Additionally, Ive changed the method of how the cake is beaten
(step 3) after eggs have been added to the cake as some were having issues with a crust
forming on the outside of the cake. This was due to beating the cake batter on high speed
before baking which in turned caused a meringue type crust to form on the outside of the
cake.

Hi Miranda,

Im so glad you loved the taste of the cake. I hate that you had problems with it. Lets
see if we can figure out what could have happened. Here are a couple of questions:
do you live at a high altitude, if so did you make any adjustments for the altitude
where you live? what is the age of your baking powder, is it fresh (like within the last
couple of months)? Lets start with these two and work from there.

Thank you so much for your fabulous cake recipes. My family

cake or cupcakes using your recipes. I would like to ask if you have ever tried substituting
coconut oil for the vegetable shortening. The oil is solidified and has very little of a coconut

Hi Ale,

Ive got you covered for the buttermilk with this easy substitute:

For the shortening, some have said theyve had good results by using coconut oil
instead of the shortening. However, Ive not personally used that and cant say either
way from my experience. To substitute coconut oil for shortening, I use 3/4 cup
coconut oil to 1 cup shortening in other recipes.

Im sorry it didnt rise for you! You might want to try using cake flour in place of the allpurpose as the all-purpose flour that I use is a southern all-purpose flour made of soft
winter wheat, which does make it a finer, lighter flour. Please let me know how that
works for you and you are always welcome to email me, if youd like as well. xo

March 23, 2015 at 10:09 pm

Hi there, I am a pastry chef and have lots of knowledge of cakes, and why they do the
funny things that they do. Let me start of by saying this cake is delicious, moist and fluffy!
This is thanks to the seemingly large amount of sugar and fats, so do not reduce the
amounts or make substitutions! If youre that concerned about the healthiness of this cake,
you should probably just avoid it.
This cake does not rise much, but that does not negatively affect its fluffiness. I followed
the directions exactly, except for one very important step which I believe is why my cake is
so fluffy inside and did not sink. Cream your butter, shortening and sugar altogether until
very white and fluffy (about 4 minutes). After that, follow the instructions to a T. If you
overbeat after adding the eggs, they will produce a tougher cake. Take extra care while
rotating pans as to not deflate the cakes, and resist the urge to open your oven door to
peek except when you need to rotate.
This cake does form a bit of a crust on top from the high egg and sugar content, which
makes it more difficult to tell when it is done. Your best hint is your nose. If you can smell
cake, then check it! If its not jiggly, take it out and scoop a little bit out of the middle to see
if its done (youre gonna cover it with frosting anyway). Dont trust the toothpick-test!
Sorry for writing a novel, I just know how hard it is to make a great white cake and this
recipe is probably the best Ive had yet, so it made me sad to see how many people were
disappointed by it due to their lack of pastry knowledge and proper method.

Holy mother of all that is yummy are you kidding me? This is officially my new favorite
vanilla cake recipe. Im not a fan of American Buttercream though so I do a twist and
concocted a version with condensed milk and heavy cream and with vanilla extract Ive
been fermenting in spiced rum since last Christmas- on this cake absolutely fabulous.
Thanks!

my 3 year old son and I made car shaped mini cakes with this recipe and they turned out
great! my son was never a cake eater but he loves this one. I didnt have shortening so I
just used butter and I put choc chips since my son loves chocolate. Thank you so much for
this wonderful recipe!

Thanks for the recipe. I need to make a cake for a decorating


class I am taking. So I asked my husband what kind of a cake I
should make and he said a White fluffy cake. The only one I have
made is angel food cake. I checked the website and found yours.

I just took out of the oven. It came out beautiful. Nice and golden, no crust on the sides,
did not sink in the middles. It feels fluffy because when I touch in the middle it bounces. I
am so happy. Thank you so much. I havent tasted it yet, but the batter taste good so I am
assuming it will taste good. Now I will try to find a filling that is good for the middle. I am
thinking of a glaze with fresh strawberries. Not sure never done it. Thank you again it
turned out great. One thing that I did was I put in the oven one at a time. I used a 29
pan. I only did 2 and the rest I saved for tomorrow. dont know if it will be good but will try
it on some cake pops. Thanks again <3

Hi Robyn,
I made the best ever chocolate cake and for this birthday event coming up I want to try
your white cake given all the great reviews.
I was wondering if one can use all butter instead of butter and shortening?
Someone else asked that question but I didnt notice a reply.
Also is the recipe you posted the updated version, showing 2 tsps of baking powder?.
I want to use cake flour and would I use the same amount?
I look forward to your reply as I am making it this Sunday March 15th/150 for my sisters
birthday, cheers! Deena

Hi Robyn!
Does it matter if the 9 inch cake pans are 1 inch or 2 inches on the sides? Mine are only 1
inch and Im not sure if the recipe is a lot of batter that it could swell over the top of the
pans when cooked? Thoughts?
Thank you.
