Basic White Cake Recipe


This Basic White Cake is a light and delicious cake suitable for any recipe calling for a white cake. It’s great on its own with any favorite filling or frosting; it’s especially good with Fudge Frosting, or can be used as a base for fancy cakes such as Southern Coconut Cake with Pineapple Filling. Although the directions call for baking this cake in three 8” layers, it can also be baked in a 9 x 13” dripper pan, a 17 x 11” jelly-roll pan, two 9” layer pans, a standard Bundt pan, or it will make 24+ cupcakes.
