Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaathu everyone!

I have made this vanilla cake countless times before and I am telling you, it genuinely is the best vanilla cake recipe out there. I’ve made it for Eid, family birthdays and even an engagement. It really is moist and fluffy and I love it. It’s my favourite cake recipe out there because it tastes so good.

The last time I made this vanilla cake was the other day when my uncle asked me to make one for the birth of his baby girl. I covered it with vanilla buttercream frosting that I coloured pink and then added some golden crunch sparkle things for the top of it. Originally my plan was to make a white chocolate ganache for the top but that plan failed as a lot of my baking attempts do. So I improvised and covered the top with the golden crunch sprinkles instead. I will be honest with you the golden crunch sprinkles were a bad idea because they did not taste very nice at all.

When I made this vanilla cake recipe I actually recorded it for use in my YouTube channel. Trust me it’s one thing making a cake but making a cake on video. Gosh, that is like hard. I didn’t actually anticipate how hard it is to record videos. I always get so nervous and anxious when I start to record a video. Always feel like I am going to mess up (which is true in about 70% of the cases).

This moist vanilla cake recipe will be guaranteed to become your homemade vanilla cake favourite.
