Making a cake with baking powder is easy and straightforward. Here’s a simple recipe to get you started:
● 2 cups all-purpose flour
● 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
● 3 teaspoons baking powder
● 1 teaspoon salt
● 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
● 1 cup milk
● 2 large eggs
● 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a 9-inch cake pan by greasing it with butter or cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
- Add the softened butter to the dry ingredients and mix with an electric mixer or by hand until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
- Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, stirring gently until all ingredients are well combined and the batter is smooth.
- Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once the cake has cooled, you can frost it or decorate it as desired.
